Wings are bright blue. Females have black wing edges. Undersides pale blue with small black spots which distinguish them from Common Blue. The Holly Blue is easily identified in early spring, as it emerges well before other blue butterflies. It tends to fly high around bushes and trees, whereas other grassland blues usually stay near ground level. It is much the commonest blue found in parks and gardens where it congregates around Holly (in spring) and Ivy (in late summer).

The remaining photos from my walk earlier in the week - a sunny afternoon after a grey morning. I had been looking for banded demoiselles, but though I saw quite a few I didn't get any photos. I did however got some photos I was very pleased with. This was the only butterfly I photographed and the only one that wasn't a white I saw. It was just before I ended my walk and the butterfly didn't move.

Taken on a sunny afternoon on the Norfolk Broads. Living up to its name, this butterfly is the commonest blue found in the British Isles. While the male has bright blue uppersides, the female is primarily brown, with a highly variable amount of blue.
