Blue Butterfly on Daisy 2

By petebfrance
I spent a while photographing this specimen and this was the best for showing up the colour and some of the underwing detail together. The 'daisy' is an Anthemis, and the 'Blues' seem particularly attracted to them when the sun is on them.

Thank-you for looking at, commenting on and voting for the previous effort.

a very good capture of a brown argus, I like the way you can see inside and outside AND the eyes.

A cracking close up of this female blue, the detail and colours are simply glorious. I do not know which type of blue it is but i'm sure it is not a brown argus. Epzer "Celestun" may be able to help you identify it, he is a butterfly expert who lives in France so he may well be familar with this one
