|Aricia agestis Brown Argus, female.|
A female agestis quietly feeding in a flowery meadow at, perhaps, 800m elevation near Colfiorito.
The Brown Argus can have up to 3 broods per year in Southern Europe and was plentiful in the first few days of September. In the same meadow were many Common Blues (P. icarus) and some well-worn examples of a larger species that I will post in a few days with a tentative identification.
Camera hand-held in good natural light. Flash may have fired but has probably made no impact on this exposure at 1/250th. Cropped and sharpened a little in Photoshop Elements 6.
