Nothing 'Common' about this butterfly, its beatiful! Like how well defined the actual butterfly is, in the picture.

Thanks. This is the first common blue I've been able to photograph properly - they tend to take off when approached, and I had to follow this one around the meadow for several minutes before it landed for long enough for me to get close. The females vary from entirely brown to entirely blue, and can be identified by the orange spots, while the males are a uniform vivid blue.
