The main reason for the Swells Hill visit was to see and hopefully photograph the beautiful Adonis Blues Lysandra bellargus
A species I had never even seen before
I was truly amazed by the electric blue colour of this pristine male
Many thanks to Jenny (Jenny-D), for her generous award, given to yesterday's upload - means a million
Catch up later - off to The Coppice to try and get the place ship shape for the coming bird season
Superb shot, Adrian - you have captured the colour perfectly.
it is a great colour you captured here, as you know I like them a lot.. Get them in the garden most of august.
nice bg with lovely colours Adrian.

Beautiful colour indeed, fabulous capture Adrian (jealous!!!) Andy

He is a truly handsome Butterfly, never seen one we down have them round here,
A most beautifully coloured butterfly and superbly captured.......Sandy
A blue beauty for sure Adrian.
nice color and contrast between foreground and background
You are right on the button here Adrian. That is the most vivid blue I think I have ever seen on a butterfly. Fantastic.
What a beauty Adrian

Well caught .
Blue is the colour - beautiful image Adrian.
Wow Adrian....what an incredible image, just perfect, wish I had another UA
A stunning close up of this vivid electric blue butterfly Adie, you've really nailed this one. The stick in the background is a tad distracting but that is only a minor blemish on what is a fabulous image
Just PERFECT! Adrian.
top draw Adrian.....now get back to your excellent bird shots your getting far to good at these lol
Quote: The stick in the background is a tad distracting but that is only a minor blemish on what is a fabulous image
The stick is the stem of the knapweed head he was perched upon
Ian Lavender character comes to mind
So pleased you nailed this lifer Adrian, what a stunning butterfly and capture!
Excellent shot - they really do dazzle!
One of your best yet Adrian,
It's all be said already! Stunning, lovely BG and blue is unbelievable - next year I must come and look as I live in Glos.
Lovely shot Adrian. Beautiful colour. Cathy
Absolutely stunning, Adrian!
Glad to make it 70!
Its all been said above!! Class Image Adrian!!
You keep raising the standard - this is a seriously beautiful butterfly.
Came out very nicely Adrian,
So glad your trip was worthwhile, and that EPZers have expressed their appreciation of this wonderful image with all their User Awards.
Well worthy of the accolades Adrian
Quote: Nice butt!
I think Adie will take that as a complement Matt, the last person to say that to him was probably either his missus after she'd had one too many G&T's or one of the barmaids at the Talbot Arms and they are normally under the influence of something rather strong!
