Hello TN friends,
I am not really sure of the species but it looks to me like a Polyommatus icarus.
Perhaps anybody can help me to identify this nice Butterfly.

Cheers,
Sascha

Ciao Sascha, beautiful macro with lovely little butterfly, may be Meleageria daphnis? I'm not sure, wonderful diagonal composition with splendid blurry BG, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hello Sascha,
I think that it is a male P. icarus. If it was Meleager's Blue it would have a slightly scalloped margin to the hindwing tornus, which is not apparent here. I agree with Silvio that it is an excellent composition and a great background.
Thanks
Alan
