Roosting Adonis blue

By Mike_Young
Hi folks many thanks for yesterdays votes and comments, thank you very much to thevalleywalker for his UA

Today its the turn of an Adonis blue , I found this one going to roost late one evening, I've included another version of an Adonis on my fore finger, to give an idea of scale, it was a bit of a struggle to take this one, my arms were just long enough for a one handed shot LOL
