The little blues are around at last, but very flighty, and reluctant to spread their wings for the camera. Here's a selection I captured along the bramble hedge late one afternoon.

Hi Carol, I went this last weekend to do some shots, I was lucky to find one of this creature you brought today. I didn't know how little this butterfly is, and how it moves so quickly from one place to another making so hard for us to capture it.

Well done, good set!!!
Warm regards,
LuDa
