Re: millerd

Cracking find that Common Blue ab Dave :D :mrgreen: I had a look in the Cockayne Collection - the dark spotting could make it an ab. hylasoides or ab. nigromaculata but there didn't seem to be anything resembling the orange spotting :?

Cheers Goldie :D I find Essex to be less in your face orange compared to that of Small. It was more difficult telling the Essex from Lulworths than Small from Lulworth the other week. Mind you by the time I get round to posting that the summer could well be over :roll: :lol: Have a goodun Wurzel 14

I'm in the closing stages now Bugboy - that it until Mrs Wurzel decides that we need to freshen the place up :roll:
A great set of blues there Bugboy which must have been very good compensation for missing the Brostreaks - especially the Adonis :D :mrgreen:

Even more beautiful species Guy, the Sage Skipper is a beaut - is it supposed to have an orangey head or is that the pollen it's collected whilst feeding?

I'm not sure if it is an aberrant - I've seen some with markings to make them more cryptic but never anything as 'organised' as this :shock: - if it's not an ab it should be :D :mrgreen:
