According to my butterfly cards - this is a female Common Blue
The male is much more attractive I think being Blue all over (or mostly).
However well done for capturing one at all.

This is a lovely shot Gary, yes a female Common blue as Kate mentioned, there should be less blue on the top side of her wings than in the Males.

A brilliant close up Gary, the detail and colours are immaculate. Is this a newly hatched individual taken recently or have you been saving this one up since last year?
