he Common Blue (Polyommatus icarus) is a small butterfly in the family Lycaenidae, widespread over much of the Palaearctic. Recently, Polyommatus icarus was discovered in Mirabel, Quebec, Canada by Ara Sarafian, an amateur entomologist who observed the butterfly from 2005 to 2008. He contacted the Canadian National Collection of Insects in Ottawa where the butterfly was identified as P. icarus, a new alien butterfly to Canada and to North America. The butterfly seems to be well established and is extending its range from year to year.
The larva feeds on Leguminosae. Recorded foodplants are Lathyrus spp., Vicia spp., Vicia cracca, Oxytropis campestris, Lotus corniculatus, Trifolium pratense, Oxytropis pyrenaica, Astragalus aristatus, Astragalus onobrychis , Astragalus pinetorum, Medicago romanica, Medicago falcata and Trifolium repens.

Hello Durzan,
How are you? Nice to see some new picture from you! Two P. icarus in love but soon the season will be over..
Nice presentation, the focus is not perfectly all over both butterflies, difficult to reach with their pose.
Kind regards
