Chalkhill Blue
Silbergrüner Bläuling
Argus bleu-nacré

Family: Lycaenidae
Genus: Polyommatus
Wingspan: 30-35m
Flighttime: July-August

Males have pale silvery-blue wings with black and white border and females are dark brown, also with the black and white borders.

Despite bad weather for more than a month, when the sun shows for a moment, butterflies come out like this male P. coridon giving us some opportunity to take pictures.

Un papillon que j'adore avec les théclas, ici il est superbe.
