Information on this species I provided on the image I posted yesterday. During the day I had found a place where lots of these blues were flying, so I went back there during "golden hour" (last hour before sunset) to make some images. This specimen chose the seeds of Scabiosa columbaria to get the last glimpses of sunlight before spending the night. Sun was already very low so I had to make this images with the camera upside-down, using an angled viewfinder (to look from the side of the camera) in order not to shade the butterfly.
