Hello to all my TN friends !
I returned from a short trip, I hope you are all well !
Unfortunately, soon I'll be absent for a longer time so I'll take these few days to share with you some interesting photos !

This is a female of The Meleager's Blue (Polyommatus daphnis), it is a butterfly of the Lycaenidae family .

A very distinctive blue. The scalloped hindwings are very distinctive in this species and the female upperside is unique and unmistakable. The males are of a bright powder blue. Both sexes are large.

It flies across much of central eastern and south eastern Europe but it seems to be very local and uncommon. In western Europe it flies in northern Italy, northern Spain and southern France.

This was the first time I've saw this butterfly , I hope you like it !

Hello Miroslav,
An interesting species of butterfly I have rarely seen around here too. Good vertical framing, however it seems to me that the picture is slightly overexposed, may be due to the presence of the light flowers.
Kind regards
