When is a blue not a blue?

By livinglevels  
Thanks for last night's comments and votes.

This beautifully iridescent female Escher's Blue (Polyommatus escheri) was again taken on the Col des Fillys in the French Alps back in July.

This was the first time that I had come across this species but was not able to identify it till returning home.

Not sure if the background adds or distracts?

Very well captured, nice angle and dof. Looks very much like a Common Blue female apart from the border of the markings on the wing edge!!
