What are you little one?

Marine Blue butterfly heather 1.jpg

Walking around nearby forested area I noticed few of those flying around. Shy little things that blend so well with the dried leaves and sticks around. They are also small enough to go around and between all the little gaps in bushes.

Finally one decided to sit for a little bit on a dry Heather branch. I trying to get as close as I could and just kept showing in case it decided to fly away.

And he was just walking slowly along the stick and moving his wings. What a pretty thing!

I tried to find and ID for it and the closest I saw was Marine Blue [Leptotes marina], but all the info I found was pointing out that it is American butterfly. Could it be that it is also widespread in Europe, or there is a similar one?
Please someone correct me if it is not this one.

The real reason why moths are always attracted to the spotlight, their all exhibitionist!

The shouting

Moth man: AGHH! Take my photo here. Capture me in all my beauty!

This just verifies that Ewkaw is a moth lover and a furry

The first photo is great, I'm working on swapping my 60mm lens for a 105 lens.
