Chalkhill Blue, male

Chalkhill Blues are, which their name suggests, are found on chalk soiled landscapes/south facing slopes. In the south of England the North and South Downs can hold thousands of these beautiful insects on a good year and Denbies near Dorking, Surrey on the South Downs is particularly good. Carpets of these butterflies is not uncommon on Denbies and is just an amazing site, something not to be missed for any butterfly enthusiast.
