The first time this year I have seen and captured two common blues creating more common blues! The one on the right was rather tatty, but I still thought it made a pleasing photo.

So, this must show the difference between the male and female, although which is which? Or is the one one the right just getting past its prime? Just looking at this from a natural science viewpoint.
I once captured two swallowtails flying side by side, and on bugguide.net they told me I had the fortune of getting both a female and male in the same capture - if they hadn't pointed out the very slight variations in marking, I never would have seen it.
