We got the blues

I can't believe that, after such a bad winter, the blues have survived!
First a couple of Common Blues at Postling at lunchtime (no camera, so no undignified leaping and crouching), then two male and one female Adonis Blues at the north end of the Lydden reserve in the evening.
Hopefully when I return at midday tomorrow there will be more.
Also on the agenda for the weekend is a bit more woodwalking, and the promise of more plants like Solomon's Seal seen today near Shepherdswell.
And maybe more bugs to try to identify. This may be Cardinal Beetle pyrochroa serraticornis.

Steve ,
For a moment I thought you were going to start singing !
Nice shots of the Adonis , the first of two chances to see them .
Certainly wouldn't argue with your bug ID .
Hope you get some of the rain .
