Celastrina argiolus: 23-30mm. A species which inhabits northern Africa, the whole of Europe and Palaearctic Asia, and in North America reaching south to New Mexico. Characteristic of shrubby lowlands localities and damp forests, often occurring plentifully in clearings rich in flowers, it likes to sit on the leaves of shrubs and trees. There are two or three generations in the year. The caterpillar lives on various shrubs, notably holly, ivy and buckthorn. The pupa hibernates.

Hi Rimantas,nice capture of this celastrina of the last year. In these days there is a big invasion of these butterflies in my country. The pic is good with the best detail around the head,excellent exposure too.Have a good night and thanks,Luciano

Hi Rimantas,

you have managed to capture the details wonderfully well. You have also managed to use the light very well exposing the butterfly with the right amount of details.

Best regards,
