This is the most popular specie of all Lyceanidae. Butterflies are available in hot summer days. The wingspan of the adults is about 30 mm.
The males are blue, the females are brown.

The caterpilars could be found on Lotus, Trifolium and Vicia. They spend the winter inside the ant house.

no, no, kto tu zawitał! Korzystam czasem ze strony lepidoptera p. Jonki a on tu jest w TN! Nie wiedziałem. Motyli tu w bród, niektóre fantastycznej jakości co zauważyłeś. Tutaj ten Common blue jest ok.

Great capture of this Lycaenidae, Christoper!
Very good on colours!
Very nice POV!
Good DOF!

There is nothing common about this shot! The detail is awesome and the composition is great! I just shot my first butterfly pictures this weekend and I can really appreciate what an excellent shot this is--great job!
