My favourite butterfly Carol and you have 4 stunning images of it. The flower is also magnificent and would make a good pic on its own. Also love V3 and 4 showing the inside of the wings....great photography as usual.

Stunning shots as always Carol with V4 being just sublime. No blues over here yet but I did see 2 swallows yesterday, quite early I think.

All superb images - I too love that flower in V2.
Funny enough I always prefer to see the blues with full wing span on their blue side
and combined with yellow flower V4 is a corker!.

V1 is the pick of this stunning set Carol, these common blues are such beautiful little butterflies. I've seen the first blues here too, the holly blues are on the wing now as are some early orangetips, small whites and green veined whites.
