Female Common Blue Butterfly by 


Taken at RSPB Old Moor Reserve in South Yorkshire, England.
This is a beautiful early season female. They are often almost completely brown on the upper wings but this one is nearly as blue as a male. The orange spots give it away as a female though.

Sony a77 with Tamron 90mm f2,8 macro lens.

Unborn tomorrow, and dead yesterday,
Why fret about them if today be sweet!
