A Common Blue (Polyommatus icarus) hanging on for dear life as the strong winds battered both the stems across the water meadows and the photographer.
PJB Update: A recent CT scan revealed nothing so his total lack of awareness, cognitive response, movement etc. has been identified as oxygen starvation and so the experts have warned us that there is unlikely to be any chance of any recovery. The hospital say he will initially be moved to a Nuerology Ward where they will keep him comfortable and hopefully pain free while everyone awaits the enevitable outcome.....however long that may be. Doubtless a few or possibly many more sleepless nights while those that care wish him a peaceful release while holding onto the happy memories of all those past years........FAB.
