[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A mating pair of Plebejus argus, the Silver-studded Blue. The species is strongly associated with ants of the genus Lasius. The ants take care of the caterpillars, which in return provide honey dew to their host, just as aphids do.
The S-s Blue is becoming rare in Belgium, but is still abundant in the "reserve naturelle de Sclaigneaux".

This is a excellent captured!
Great colour,very clear detail,nice composed.
TFS!

Good capture of these little beauties, good POV and sharpness and a nicely oof bg, a higher F-stop would have given better DOF, that should have been possible, as 1/2000 (should that be 1/200?) isn't necessary for a sitting target ;-))

Great shot, Philippe. Sharp details, beautiful colors. I particularly like the way the two butterflies seem to complement each other, with the different wing colors. Excellent composition. TFS. : )
