This cute little blue was giving me a wonderful pose, resting his arm on the edge of the cistus seedhead, as if to say 'well get on with it, I want some sleep' Smile

At the risk of boring you all, I am going to upload a number of sets of ‘blue’ images periodically over the next few weeks. The reason being that I have discovered a spot where there are tens of blues around at present, and a number of them willing to do some posing for me! I go in the early evening when they are starting to roost, and they are at their quietest, the downside of going in the evening is that they are in the shade, and my little Panasonic doesn’t take too kindly to taking photographs in shady spots! I hope that you will enjoy the first set as much as I did taking the images.

If it's too shady you could take a reflector with you - mine is a postcard covered in tin foil. Smile Admitedly that means taking shots one handed unless you take a tripod, but worth a try. Smile
