Common Blue Butterfly

By stevesloan
Hi Sorry been away for a while....I'll be catching up with your galleries shortly.....

Meanwhile , a common blue ( I think ...unless you know differently, all suggestions very welcome) butterfly taken on the cliffs at Filey in Yorkshire, my instinct was to think it was an Adonis Blue but they are nowhere near Filey!

For the Panasonic/Olympus user , I have recently bought the 45-175 lens and it is a cracker.

Welcome back with a lovely common blue - not so common in Scotland I'm afraid - I've only ever seen one here!

I hate it when a species is called common, especially this one as it is uncommonly beautiful. Lovely shot.
