A very beautiful blue butterfly from the Lycaenidae Polyommatinae family.
This species is common in Portugal and hasn't a portuguese common name. In english is known as Common blue.
The male and female has different colours on uper-side wings. The male is blue and female is brown.
It has 28-36 mm wide wings.
On my country it could have three or four generations.
Their caterpillars are green. They feed on Trifolium spp.; Lotus spp.; Medicago sativa; Ononis spp. and several other plants.
It flies from Mars till April till 1400 meters of altitude.
Its a very active butterfly and difficult to catch it with wings open.

Hello Paulo Herique!
Personal assessment of the photo: great. A little too much space useless to the left, IMHO.
Strong visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: complete.

Excellent close up Paulo. Very good colours and perspective. Very good sharp details. I love the black spots on the wings of the butterfly. Very good job!

Paulo, running late, commentgs later..

Hi Paulo!
I agree - very common but beautifull butterfly. Extremaly hard to capture with spreaded wings ;-) Yesterday I made few photos of same kind. Great details, colours and light. Very good work!

Hi Paulo, I do love these butterflies, and I know we have a similar, but different, one in NZ. I'm looking forward to trying to photograph one this summer. The blue fur looks so good, and I love how it changes into the patterns. Well captured, thank you.

Hello Paulo, I have never pay attention to insects until I got my close up lens a couple of moths ago. It is incredible to find the same kind of species in different continents and with so different weather conditions. I have a shot of the same butterfly in my gallery shotted in Bolivia. I also included yours in a theme that I created for this butterfly. You will notice that this butterfly can be found in almost all the continents. About your compo, you did a fine job. Very clear and sharp. Perfect macro. Thanks for sharing. Gabriel

Hi Paulo,
Beautitul shot of this blue butterfly. Good sharpness and lot of details to see. Excellent composition and pov. TFS
