A female adonis blue butterfly trying to evade the clutches of a crab spider that is lurking at the back of this devils bit scabious. I saw this mini drama unfold at Swelshill Bank near Stroud back at the beginning of September. The butterfly managed to fly off without any harm coming to it as did the burnet moth pictured in v3 which landed on the flower a short time after.
