Another Blue

Apologies for the indulgence, but I didn't get to see or post many images of Common Blue butterflies last year so I'm making up for it this year. 
Although not many, I have seen more this year already than the whole of last year.

Sony A6000.  FE-70-200mm lens.  1/320 at f8.  200mm.  ISO320

    1. Thanks GG.
      Their wingspan is 35mm if that helps to compare.
      That will be about an inch and a quarter.

  10. Lovely captures. I have seen a few Common Blues at Durlston, difficult to get a good picture of them, they are a bit flighty at the moment.

    1. Thanks Lyn.
      Yes especially the males, but mid afternoon is probably a good time.
