I spotted quite a number of blues perched in pairs, and decided it would be fun to try and capture them together. Far from easy, believe me, if I managed to get one in focus, then the other wasn't, or one would fly off before I could press the shutter, here are a few attempts that I thought worth saving.

That was a hard task you set yourself, Carol, but you have managed very well considering: I have scanned back and forth over the three shots and each could occupy the lead slot , I feel.

A super set Carol, it's good to see some shots of pairs that aren't mating. You'd have no trouble snapping the blues brothers on the carline thistles if you visited Swelshill Bank in Stroud. Both the chalkhills and adonises nectared together and sometimes in the company of brown arguses.
