Another image from Tuesdays trip to Swelshill Bank near Stroud to see the second generation adonis blues, I was pleased to see a good number of both these and the challkhill blues on the day of my visit. This shot shows a pair of adonis blue butterflies producing the next generation of butterflies which will fly late next spring. The paler, slightly larger one is the male which was featured in yesterdays upload and the browner, slightly smaller one is the female.
