Thank you very much to everybody who voted and commented on my Brown Argus, and especially to Big_Beavis for the UA and Carabosse for the Junior team award.

This time last week i was in Spain with my dad and we saw lot's of different blue butterflies. We found this Silver Studded Blue roosting in the early evening sun. The yellow background is a small field of sunflowers.
