Good morning to you all,todays image is a shot of a Chalk Hill Blue butterfly that i took this morning on the south downs here in West Sussex.
This is the first chalk hill that i have spotted this year,There used to be thousands of these around this area, a few years ago, but not so many about here anymore.please try large if you have the time.
Thank you for looking and i hope you enjoy.

Just proves you don't have to get ultra close to take a lovely picture of a butterfly. Well done.

Cheers, GRAHAM
