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!!!
