Preston Down #2

How many sightings are down to sheer luck, eh? Having dipped on Brown Hairstreak where I'd seen them before I walked dejectedly back to the car. Half way back I was waylaid, trying to photograph a heat fueled  Holly Blue that led me a merry song and dance. Then this stunning female Brown Hairstreak fluttered down just next to me. She commenced to explore the Sloe (their laval food plant) affording me these shots. If I hadn't been delayed by the camera shy Holy Blue, I'd have walked on none-the-wiser!
