I feel very privialged to find myself living near such rare wildlife - The Silver Studded Blue. Today, I found them spending some intimate moments together, and later laying eggs.

For the full account about these wonderful little butterflies and the special relationship that exists between the black ants and butterfly, please see my previous uploads if you have time.
