Lycaenidae sp

Welcome suggestions for the ID ...!"

Actually, are too Lycaenids species that exist in my region. That to have the ID of each, would need to spend much time sitting investigating! So, for now, I have to post photos without ID.

This picture has an unusual POV also cut and composition are a little outside the rules. But I like the visual effect!

**Hand held camera, hard ligth day.

Thanks by stop and visit!

hello Jesus,
You seem to have so many different Lycaenidae species in your region! I looked at this picture with a lot of interest, because the beauty of this shot reveals itself only at a second glance. How beautiful the color-combination here and the fine luminosity of the shot. Really well seen. Thanks and kind regards

Hello Jesus,
Its just possible that this is Strymon mulucha (Hewitson, 1867), Mottled Scrub Hairstreak. An alternative would be Strymon cestri (Reakirt, [1867]), Tailless Scrub Hairstreak, if it has no tails on the hindwing at all. Regards.
