[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The species is Polyommatus icarus. I don't want to give a long explanation for this species because it is the commonest in Europe and you can read about it in my previous P.icarus photos.

This has an interesting story. I visited Inozu Valley for butterflies but it was not a good day, because weather was cloudy and sometimes it was raining. I only observed birds and some mammals. While I was looking at birds I saw a group of my friends who were bird watching too. After hours it was becoming darker because of clouds and dusk but suddenly one of my friend saw a butterfly on a flower. It was raining that time and they went to hide at a cave. I photographed it through the rain and after that I touched it legs with my finger and it climbed to my finger.

I took it to an another flower which rain didn't affect.

When it was on my hand I took some photos and this is one of that, it was difficult to shot with one hand and light conditions was very bad but results were interestingly good.

Have a nice week!
