Holly Blue and other insects

I was giving Wenlock Edge the once over late afternoon for Wall butterfly but the only brown job coming my way was the ever present Speckled Wood!



Some consolation came in the form of a male Holly Blue which actually stopped (can you believe it) to pose for the camera!










Plenty of Common Blues at VP, male upperwing here.....




Plus female underwing shots......





Hopes of a late hatch of Small PBF on the Stiperstones were dashed but this is certainly the place to see Grayling!



At 'The Bog' Black Darters up to their usual activities. I wouldn't recommend you try this with your partner in a Gorse bush!!
