Silver Studded Blue and Recent Walks

A round up of recent trips and walks.
I managed to get close up shots of a rabbit at Hutchinsons Bank, we dont have many on site.

on Thursday a trip with Greenie to Fairmile Common for Silver-studded Blue. They were just emerging.

There was only one female seen, and about 50 males. In the last shot, this male has recently emerged and was being attended by ants, this one drinking from the abdomen of the butterfly.

A visit to Thursley, didnt give many butterflies, but Early Marsh Orchids were in flower, but not easily photographed. The white form was near the board walk, so i managed to get a few pictures.

Today a Walk at Hutchinsons Bank, was dull so not the usual number of butterflies to be seen. We did see a Common Emerald Moth, and the first Small Skipper, note the Orange tip to the antennae.
