Thanks for all the votes and comments on my recent images.
This image is of a male Escher's Blue (Polyommatus escheri), photographed in the alpine meadows at the Col de Fillys in the Alpes de Haute Provence.
These butterflies are absolutely stunning with the male a fantastic blue compared to the iridescent brown female uploaded last week.
Not such a clean background this time but I feel it gives a good indication of the habitat they live in .
