Great detail, lovely shot Stace
You can tell an adonis blue apart from a common blue by the black marks in the white border to the wings. If these go right to the edge of the wings (as here), it is an adonis. Having said that, it is a much darker blue than is normal for an adonis, which is usually a bright electric blue. It is also a long way to the north of any recent adonis records that I am aware of. I would suggest comparing it with images on the butterfly conservation website, www.butterfly-conservation.org
What a beautiful image, such lovely color.
Certainly appears to be an Adonis Blue Danny. Could an indication of climate/ habitat change. Normally found here in the South, where it is warmer. Full on image. Ron.
