Common Blue

I've really enjoyed the butterflies so far this year. The highlights have included Duke of Burgundy, Wood White, Marsh Fritillary, Pearl-bordered Fritillary and Adonis Blue, but it's still early and there are plenty species yet to make their appearance. I keep checking for the Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary here in the Forest of Dean, which must be due to appear any day now, but I think I'm still a little too early. Or maybe I'm just not looking hard enough. This is the most common of our butterflies though - the Common Blue. It can be found in grassy areas in most parts of England and Wales, along with southern Scotland, flying from April through to October.
