Holy Blue

By NDODS    
Good day to you all...

Thank you for all your great comments and well received votes following yesterdays image of the 'Agapanthus'. Todays uploads were captured whilst out walking with my Support Walker and Kizmet and show a beautiful Holy Blue. A butterfly which I used to get mixed up with a Common Blue.

I hope that you all have a great day, for me it is going to be rather quiet after a bad night last night.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

A grand set Nathan, I think v1 and v4, the ones with open wings are shots of a male common blue. No doubt Nigel Kiteley or Matt Berry will be able to give confirm this
