Adonis blue (Lysandra bellargus)-male.
Photographed on Rew down, Ventnor, IW, 8 Aug 10.
f5.6, 1/800 sec, ISO 200 @ 150mm, hand held. This lovely little butterfly could fly perfectly well but seemed unable to fold his wings correctly upon landing, this image was taken at about 6.30 pm and he had been settled for approx 5 mins, very breezy, 30+ shots taken to get just one half decent image. Please view large.
