Very nice and attractive butterfly. It's also quite large for Lycaenidae - the maximum wingspan is 37 mm.
The butterflies are on the wings in July And August. Youcan find them on meadows, forest borders and clearings. The butterflies preffers limestone areas.

The caterpilars can be found between Aprin and June on Coronilla and Vicia plants.

Beautiful shot! You're lucky to have this beautiful butterfly in Poland. I've only seen it in south-west England once. I wonder in what part of Poland you found this? I like the colours and the composition very much.

Hi Chris,
You've presented this species, absent in our fauna up here, in a very pleasing composition with those reddish flowers as a beautiful contrast against the lovely silverish blue butterfly and its green surroudnings! TFS and best regards,
