I often see small blue butterflies flitting about the garden but Sunday was the first time I have seen them land. I was tidying up at the bottom of the garden when I noticed several different flutters were landing on the Ivy growing over my fence from the property behind me. Among them were several Holly Blue butterflies so I spent a while making sure I got some shots of them:
By the markings I think they were all females.
It was interesting to see that some of the larger butterflies often seemed to be chasing the blues away.
