Beauty and the Beast

Roaming across the Chilterns this week in search of Silver Spotted Skippers we happened upon Beauty and the Beast. A Robber Fly in an embrace with an Adonis Blue Butterfly … invoking the kiss of death.

    That is a great observation and great to be able to get a picture. Thanks.

      Thanks Andy. It was actually found by one of my guests on the tour. The fly actually carried the Adonis up a hill. I gave chase and managed to catch up with it long enough to take the shot.
