Common Blue

By fishiee
Big thanks to everyone for the comments and votes on my last upload, and especially the UA's from DerekL and richmowil!

Another one from Provence 2013. This time a male Common Blue just opening up to catch the first of the morning's rays. I found a little spot fill of Blue's and Argus's but you only had a few minutes like this in the morning before they up and away zooming around for the rest of the day!
