Thank you so much, I was blown away by your comments and clicks on the meadow I discovered two days ago Smile
Special thanks to Albert and Dave for the UAs Smile

Went back there today, only it was raining and even when it stopped there were no critters around. Will post more tomorrow depending on weather. I hope I can find out who owns the meadow and ask permission to creep in Wink

So here is a silver studded blue, female, hanging around on very hot Wednesday evening.

A top shot Annette, you've caught this tiny beauty in such wonderful warm evening light. I hoped to get something similar to this last night, after work I cycled over to my local nature reserve but it had clouded over and the light was very poor by the time I got thereSad
