The sun came out for a while yesterday, and the wind dropped, so off to the meadow I went. Better known as the short tailed blue, I spotted a number of these rather pretty butterflies, feeding on the wild heather that is covering the banks and hillsides.
Back to winds again today, and the temperature is down to 16C at 7.00am this morning, think I should have stayed in bed longer Smile

Aren't those just gorgeous. You are going to have to share some time how you manage to get the shots before they flit off. At least that is the difficulty we have with butterflies. They flit off far too quickly.

Anyway, enough whinging from me, another lovely set Carol.

Gosh 16c it must be hell for you Carol. It didn't get that warm during our summer. You do make good use of the conditions when you produce wonderful stuff like you have shown us over a period of time.
