The Small Blue Butterfly is one of Europe’s smallest butterflies,

despite its common name it’s not particularly blue!

The male has some bluish suffusion at the base of its upperwings but is mostly dark brown like the female. The undersides are a silvery grey with small black dots. The male has a bluish tint at the base of its wings similar to the upperside.
