Two beauties to brighten up the grey leaden sky!

After weeks of persistent rain (with little flying about us), we finally began sampling on Friday and came across these two beauties!  A Holly Blue Celastrina argiolus and a Rose Chafer Cetonia aurata. We are keeping are fingers crossed that good weather will arrive soon and bring with it more fascinating insects.


  1. What a cracking pair of photos! That Chalkhill Blue really is a stunner, I would have been delighted to have taken this pic myself :)

  2. Thanks - I took them using my IPhone.
