Two years ago an over-zealous resident began cutting the roadside grass and then kept it short.
All the blue butterflies disappeared.
Perhaps the resident has sold up and gone, because tonight we noticed the grass had grown longer and, yes, there were blue butterflies. Not many, but perhaps they will increase in time. The one Long-tailed Blue I saw, gave me the slip, but I get a few shots of several Common Blues. Yay 🦋
