I spotted this tiny blue relaxing on the discarded shell of a cicada and thought what an unusual place to take a rest Smile

Mornin' Carol,
You have produced three belters for this morning's upload
Love V2Smile

Blowin' a hooly at the moment though reasonable mild
I don't expect it to be very warm at the coast though

Initially I thought the cicada was a spider that was about to eat the butterfly, then I thought the butterfly had just emerged from its cocoon, which was a very strange shape, then I read the text and realised I'm an idiot! No big surprise there, or in the fact that this is another excellent photo.
