a pair of Chalkhill Blues mating
Taken at Warham Camp Norfolk UK
As its name suggests, the Chalkhill blue is found on chalk downland, although limestone downland is also used. The adult butterfly is most-often seen in bright sunshine, where the ground may appear to shimmer with the activity of hundreds, if not thousands, of males searching for a mate just a few inches above the ground.
a few weeks ago there was a butterfly count of the Chalkhill Blues in this area and the count was 6,500 .
