Adonis Blue, Cerne Abbas, Dorset

I took another trip to Alners Gorse today and was lucky enough to have 3 more sightings of Brown Hairstreak. They'd not been low or close enough for pictures so I thought I'd try my luck at Cerne Abbas for Adonis Blue. I'd never seen one before today but thought I was in with a shout at this time of year.

 

Whilst I'm a real fan of all the blues the colour of the Adonis Blue male is just breathtaking, it's so vibrant.
