Hi Ilias,

Thank you for sharing this lovely Common Blue Butterfly my friend, fabulous natural colours with amazing sharpness, good work and thanks for sharing,
Best Regards,


Hi Ilias, theres no way this is a Common Blue. They don't have such broad black margins to the wings. Silver-studded Blues on the other hand do, and without seeing any other ID features on the underside I would suggest that as the species.

Regardless of ID its a lovely shot, well done!

  • Great
