[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Britain's smallest resident Butterfly and despite its common name not particularly blue! The male has some bluish suffusion at the base of is upperwings but is mostly dark brown like the female. The undersides are a silvery grey with small black dots. The male has a bluish tint at the base of his wings similar to the upperside. It has a very patchy distribution across the UK with its strongholds on the chalk and limestone grasslands of southern England such as the Cotswolds and Salisbury Plain.
