Adonis Blue

The Adonis Blue prefers dry chalk or limestone grassland with abundant foodplants in short turf, but slightly taller vegetation may be used in sheltered quarries. Most colonies occur on warm, south-facing slopes where favoured breeding areas are sheltered hollows (especially old chalk pits and quarries). This one was found yesterday on the lower slopes of Rodborough Common, Gloucestershire.
