Unfinished business ...

Springhead Hill, 20 July 2012

Early this morning I paid a repeat visit to Springhead Hill and timed my arrival just prior to the first rays of sun began heating the ground and the numerous Chalkhill Blues roosting in the meadow. My objective, to find and photograph a female warming her wings in readiness for the first flight of the day. Amongst the many males I encountered, I managed to find just two females during the time I was there, the first still roosting and the second positioning her wings towards the rising sun. The latter posed beautifully for around ten minutes, at which point she and her many admirers took to the air.

A great way to start the day ....
