Many thanks for the votes and comments on yesterday's Adonis Blue, and especially to TerryMck for the UA, all are very much appreciated.

Took Ben out today in search of these little beauties, we found quite a few aswell as several Pearl Bordered's and my first Large Skippers of the year. Going back for more tomorrow as the light wasn't that good, mind you i'm pretty pleased with this one which was shot at 1/30th sec, thank goodness for IS!

An outstanding image Nigel, you've captured its colours and wing markings wonderfully well. I'm hoping to see some of these in the Forest of Dean on Thursday

Stunning shot Nigel! A pretty fine image in any conditions!

Seems like these have been doing very well this year, as has been the case with pretty much all species this year for a change! Smile
