Description:

Down in the south of France between Carcassonne and the Pyrenees I spotted a couple of new (to me, not science!) butterflies. This is the first which I believe to be an Ilex Hairstreak.
I'd never heard of it before and neither, it seems, has the iSpot database so I've gone entirely manual. Still, Britain does not host these characters. :)
