Holly Blue larva

 Following on from my previous post I found what is possibly a new Holly Blue larva yesterday and this one also had an attendant Ant with it.

This larva was quite a bit larger than the other one I found and one of the photos also shows an old egg case.  Not long after taking the pictures I saw the larva walk away from this area with the Ant still in attendance.

  1. Excellent. We have seen loads of Holly Blues in East Lothian this year. We have only had the odd record previously and I think last year's good summer gave them the boost they needed. It is amazing to see them in so many different places all of a sudden.
