Dusky and Scarce Large Blue video ready!

After a long silence on my blog, I am now ready to add a short video compilation of the two rare Large Blue butterfly species that are associated with the Great Burnet plant, Sanguisorba officinalis, the Scarce Large Blue, Maculinea teleius, and the Dusky Large Blue, M. nausithous. I filmed and photographed both of these species in Liechtenstein earlier this summer, and was delighted to see them apparently thriving in this clearly very well-managed reserve.
