Hello Ra,
Lovely colours on this blue butterfly and a very good point of view to show all the wings in great detail. Well done. You will notice that the hind wings each have a long tail on them, so this is actually an example of Lampides boeticus , called the Long Tailed Blue in English, rather than a species of the Genus Polyommatus as none of those have these tails. Thanks for posting.

Lovely capture of this beautiful blue butterfly Ra.
Good colour and some good detail.
I see Alan has corrected your ID
Perhaps when you read our comments you can change your title to Lampides boeticus and perhaps add a few more notes.
Nice shot though.

Hi Ra, elegant butterfly with great colors, perfect focus, fine details and excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hola Ra,
Perfect exposure and focus in this beautiful boeticus!
very sharp in both butterfly and the green plant!
well done
muchas gracias

Hello Ra,

The silky-crisp feeling of the wings is well captured!
Attractive colour reproduction, and the subject has sharp fine details...
Composition wise you may go a bit closer without losing anything of interest!
