Baton Blue

By Mike_Young
Hi folks, Thanks for the response to yesterdays upload, as always your votes and comments are very much appreciated.

Today I've decided to offer you a less close up image, of this Baton blue, it was the first time I'd seen this pretty, very small butterfly, and in fact, it was the only example I saw in the whole 10 week trip.
I manage only a half dozen shots before it flew over a barbed wire fence into some private land.
Hope you enjoy this one, have a great weekend !
