Comments(5) # Male Common Blue Butterfly london e17

I'm still of the opinion that this year has not generally been a very good one for butterflies but I'm glad to see that there do seem to be more Common Blues than I've seen for several years around here. This is the male of the species and only giving us a small glimpse of his glorious glistening blue upper wing surfaces.........more of that in a day or three. The female's upper wing surfaces are a less striking which also means they're harder to see. Nevertheless we'll have one of them too in a bit. Canon EOS 40D
