A tiny little butterfly as you can see by its small size in proportion to the rather wrinkled blackberry on which it is sitting. Classified as one of the blues and spending most of its time high amongst the leafy oak canopy, nevertheless every year seems to find them venturing down to this particular bramble patch.
