Silver Studded Blues
I've fallen a bit in love with these rare butterflies, found on Prees Heath. They're smaller than Common Blues, and have a distinctive underwing pattern that features a little blue 'stud' in the centre of one of the ring markings round the edge of the wing (see post below for a photo of this). I'm guessing that the brown specimens are female and the blue male - not sure about the one that seems to be both!
