Week 19, Common Blues: Intimate Moments

After a sunny Sunday, the forecast is for a fairly breezy, wet week. It’s going to require a bit of luck to catch a dry spell of weather at the same time as I’m free to get out around Box Moor. So, in an attempt to maintain summer optimism whilst waiting for a break the rain, here are a few shots to be going on with. A mating pair of Common Blues from the Brickworks on Sunday morning. They really meant business, remaining firmly connected in flight (impressive!), at rest (easy) and whilst clambering over plants (also impressive, although, I'm not sure who leads and who walks backwards).

And, finally, preserving their modesty with the proverbial fig leaf...
