No terning for me as time and workload will not permit so somewhat blue. One of these sailed past me at Banks Pond the other day but was gone before the camera was raised. Nice to see though as Butterflies are pretty few and far between this year.
I managed to catch up with this one at Hauxley at the weekend. A nice intense blue especially when seen against a background of contrasting colours.
Interesting then that the underside is so different. I've always puzzled that even against the light the pattern doesn't seem to show through to the other side when the wing material must be so increadibly thin. No doubt a trick of reflecting light and like some other blue creatures it's not actually blue.
