With no outing today it gave me some time to look through the hundreds of shots taken yesterday and remember what a fantastic trip it was. As well as seeing the Long tailed Blues I also saw and photographed a male Brimstone, a butterfly that I do no often encounter. Thankfully it posed for a few seconds allowing me to grab a few wanted shots.
There were also quite a few Chalkhill Blues around with a few seen mating making for more shots as well as a few Small Copper patrolling their territory vicariously against any intruders.
One species seen quite well was the Wall Brown, a species that seems to have declined a lot over the years but a few posed nicely in the sun.
Last but not least to finish this post off, the fantastic Long tailed Blue, still cannot quite believe I have seen one still, and in Kent. Weather permitting I shall be out in the next few days seeing what bird and butterfly life I can find and photograph!
