Ten Adonis Blues

By paddyman
Hello all,Not the best of backgrounds,but i just had to share this image with you all...
The Adonis blue butterfly along with the chalkhill blue,is the quintessential butterfly of the southern English chalklands.
It is still very localised as colonies recover from a calamitous 30-year decline,yet today it can be seen by the hundred
on certain warm downs from Dorset to Kent...
Thanks for looking and i hope you enjoy....Alec.

What a great capture of them. It sort of looks like they are sitting on a cow pie. They sure are abundant there.............Sandy

Lovely striking colours and very well taken. Pity they couldn't find something more appealing to land on but hey ho each to their own Grin
