In my previous blogpost I wrote about dune pansies and said that this subject never disappoints. The same holds true for the Silver-studded Blue. Let me explain why I like this subject. Online I found this sentence when looking for some info: “The Silver-studded Blue has a restricted distribution but occurs in large numbers in suitable heathland.”
For me this implies: I won’t find them nearby where I live but if I find a spot where I discover the first one I’m pretty sure I will find many more of them. And by now I found my spot: a very comforting idea as the alarm goes off at 03.30. It’s not very often you have so many butterflies at your disposal. Which increases the chance that you will find one that sits exactly in the right spot.
