...a small blue thing


The Small Blue Butterfly (Cupido minimus) is a beautiful thing and easily overlooked amongst it's more brightly coloured cousins.


It is however a priority species for conservation due to the continued loss of habitat and resulting drop in population.


Happy Blue Monday Everyone!
