Common blue (Polyommatus icarus), taken at Rew down, Ventnor, July 2010.
1/500th sec @ f/5.6, ISO 200, 105mm, manual focus, hand held. Such a miserable day today spent sometime looking back and sorting out images taken throughout the year, in only about four and a half months these beauties will be back on the wing. A little less breeze next spring would be pleasing, please view large.
Thank you to all who viewed, commented and voted on my previous upload.
