Brown Argus

By Holmewood
Thank you so much for the votes and comments on my last upload.

Sorry I have not been around but it has been a busy week. Took my young pony to a show on Sunday and came second in hand (not riding). So I was busy getting him ready and plaiting him up then it was my birthday on Monday. So all in all a busy time.

Up early yesterday again and my first Brown Argus this year. Hopefully the blues will be along shortly. Hope you like it.

I will catch up with voting and commenting this evening.

Have a great rest of the day.

Cathy and Stan

I assume the wings are brown and the undercarriage blue. You gather I know nothing about butterflies, apart from the fact if is this one doesn't dry himself soon
he'll catch a death of cold. Yet again another impressive capture, and congratulations on winning your rosette Cathy.
