Common Blue (Polyommatus icarus): An iconic butterfly, the Common Blue emerges in late spring, around the middle of May. The larvae feed on leguminous plants such as common birds-foot trefoil, and are often attended by ants, which receive a sweet sugary secretion as a reward for protecting the caterpillar. A second brood can be seen in July and August. At present these butterflies are restricted to the northern meadow area of the cemetery.
