Hello Tn-friends, thanks for your kind words of my previous post.
Todays post is also a mating couple, Green-underside Blue. It's pretty rare up here but locally you can find a lot of them.

The wingspan ranges from 27 to 36 millimeters, and in different individuals.Green-underside blue male is blue on top and gray underneath. The female has a broad brown border around the blue wings on the top and underside is light gray. The larva is green and up to 15 millimetres long. This butterfly occurs on drier meadows and mountain slopes.
Green-underside Blue range is in Europe and on through Central Asia to Mongolia and northern China. The prevalence in Europe is in much of Europe except the Netherlands, British Isles, Iceland, northern Russia, Sardinia, Cyprus and some other smaller areas.
