Today another upload from a small butterfly,I guess it is a female Plebejus Argus,but I might be wrong as lots of these small blues are quite alike,picture is made again in Stora Vika and sharpened and adjusted levels before upload,hope you like it and have a nice weekend.

Hi Paul.
What a great subject and superb picture of it. I like all at your terrific picture: crisp sharpness and extreme details of the butterfly and flower and their beautifulness, amazing colour reproduction, wonderful composition of the shot and stunning combination of sharpness and blurriness of the image. BG is so fantastic as the main subject. Bravo and once more my favorite shot.
