A new butterfly in the garden

I’m always pleased when we get a new butterfly species visit the garden. I was especially pleased to see this individual. It’s a Holly Blue (Celastrina argiolus) and although it’s quite common it’s a very welcome visitor to our garden.

Apologies for the poor photo but it insisted in feeding at the top of our Rowan tree and this was the best I could manage.
