Common Blue Butterflies

The Common Blue Butterflies have once again returned to the meadows surrounding Würzburg,

Here are the results of my first outing photographing them this season .

I was particularly pleased to get a couple of images of them with their wings open.

I really enjoy photographing butterflies. Not only because they are relatively easy to find. I also find butterflies to be one of the most delicate and attractive insects.

The first two images are both of the Short Tailed Blue Butterfly. Which after a bit of research is apparently quite a rare find in the Würzburg region.
The following two are both of the more Common, Common Blue Butterfly.
