Adonis Blue.Butterfly

The Adonis Blue butterfly prefers chalky South facing slopes.
When flying the male is easy to spot when compared to a male Common Blue.
The bright almost unreal colour shines brightly in the sun.

I photographed these images on a visit to the surrounding land of the Cerne Abbas Giant.
To find out more about the Giant you can Google him here:


As you can see, he is quite a 'Pronounced' fellow.

Two views below from the top of the Cerne Giant.

A Moorhen Family

I found this family of Moorhens making their way along the River Froome that runs through Dorchester. 
I counted seven chicks with the two adults.
The river is quite fast flowing, but the chicks where able to fight the current and swim upstream despite their fragile state.
