A male common blue butterfly I saw on the cliff tops at Sand Point near Weston-Super-Mare back in late August. This species was badly affected by the poor weather this year as I saw very few of these this summer compared with recent years.

The only thing that I saw at Weston-Supper-Mare, were scantly clad German tourists, and elderly war veterans like myself. A great image Ed, one which as always fills me with so much pleasure.

You've nailed this one Ed, it's just a shame that camera doesn't throw the b/g OOF too well, not that I'm complaining of course Wink BTW you were right the Emerald was from Woodgreen, I was just buggered if I could remember it this morning........Well I was a little on the tired side and it was a wee while ago Sad
