It may be a common blue, but it's one I don't ever remember seeing before!

Thank you Dave. Once more a beautiful picture.

After seeing the photo of me you took yesterday at the homecoming of the Wigan Rugby team and todays photo of the day
I can see you are quite good with a camera.

Thanks folks - they're easy to miss as they're only small. if you've seen a tiny blue butterfly flitting about low down then chances are it's one of these.

It is so real it looks like an arrangement.

Just an excellent photo, Dave.

Pin sharp and great depth of field.

How do you do it?

Well done, lad.
