Having bemoaned the fact that there seems to be a sad lack of blues over here this year, on one of my trips out yesterday I spotted a bramble hedgerow teeming with them. However, they were most un-cooperative, acting like school children having been released for their summer vacation! The best I could manage were a couple of images of what I believe to be lampides boeticus, better known as the long tailed blue. I am not too good at distinguishing between the long tailed and the short tailed blues, so if I am wrong, do please correct me.
