Lynda sent us this super photo of a Holly Blue she saw in her Corfe Mullen garden on 17/04/2021 saying:

It’s been a very slow year in my garden for most insects, very disappointing when a friend in Worcester is seeing so much in his.  Most butterflies I have seen when out and about don’t seem to want to stop for photos, apart from Peacocks and occasionally Brimstones but this Holly Blue was very accommodating – it landed very close me while I was gardening, luckily with my camera to hand.
