An Eastern Tailed-Blue

This year has been slow for the butterfly watchers.  I have seen only a few butterflies per day recently, and had a streak of about a week where I did not see any.

Yesterday was hot and rainy, with dark clouds all day.  Not good butterfly weather.  But I did manage to see four species–maybe eight or nine individuals.  One of them was this male eastern tailed-blue.

    It’s been very slow for butterflies here in the UK too, we seem to be about a month behind where we should be.
