I found this Blue-spot Hairstreak (Satyrium spini) at Les Lionnets above lake Serre-Poncon in the Hautes-Alpes.
Not totally happy with the framing and not sure what the plant is either but it was low growing. Any ideas?
There were two of these hairstreaks in the lay-bye and they were quite restless in the mid morning heat.
