I spent a while chasing this little beauty around the garden trying to take its picture a couple of days ago. Every time it settled and I got my camera down close to it, it would flutter up and and a couple feet away. Finally I managed to get a few shots off and I think this is the best one.
Apparently the Holly Blues are quite common, living mainly around holly bushes, oddly enough, but I think this is the first time I,ve actually seen one. I reckon he’d fluttered in from the garden behind mine as they have recently chopped their big old holly tree down, which I,m not too happy about as a lot of the local songbirds used to sit in that tree, but what could I do!!!
