Blue butterfly

I was delighted to see this pretty little butterfly and he was very obliging - sitting on the Jolly Bee geranium for ages. I think it is a common blue.

Must be a good year for the blues as I've seen quite a few over the fields. They are so vibrant and very quick too so you did a good job of getting this photo, well done!!!

I've just found out this is the female, they usually have brown upper wings with a fringe of orange and black markings and this is what is called an 'intermediary' with part blue on the upper wings.

Thanks for that info, Wagger. Belonging to GoY is certainly a good education :)

I suppose it's because male birds are always the showy ones that I assumed it had to be a 'he'.
