Blue Heaven depicts the endangered Large Blue butterfly. It is one of the most enigmatic butterflies, whose remarkable life cycle involves spending most of the year within the nests of red ants, where the larvae feed on ant grubs. The Large Blue has always been rare in Britain and became extinct in 1979, but it has been reintroduced from continental Europe as part of a long-term and highly successful conservation project.

The Large Blue is declining throughout its world range and is endangered globally.
