Photo of the Week

The Silver-studded Blue Plebes argus is a rare butterfly of heathland habitats. The undersides of the wings are spotted with black, blue and orange giving the ‘silver stud’ appearance, as it spreads its wings and warms in the sun. Now restricted to specific sites in southern England, Wales and Shropshire, heathland restoration is vital for the survival of this species. Caterpillars of the Silver-studded Blue are often found with ants which protect the caterpillars in return for the sugary substance they produce.
