Cissbury revisited

Cissbury Ring never disappoints and apart from a glorious view there were plenty of butterflies: Chalkhill Blues, Common Blues and Meadow Browns were most plentiful. There were also Walls, Small Coppers and some old Dark-green Fritillaries.
 This Chalkhill Blue was much darker than the others (top).
