Brown Argus, less controversial photo?

In his comment on my original post about the brown argus, Jon Baker commented that in real life the butterfly may not have shown up as blue as the photo made it appear, so here is another photo of the same butterfly which has only been cropped from how it was taken and no other manipulation of the image has been done.

I didn't use this photo on the original post as the wings are not as flat, but in this picture the butterfly does appear less blue and if I'd used this, there may have been less controversy - sorry, everyone!

  1. One other factor is the abodmen shape. A female would have a shorter, usually fatter abdomen, so I think this is a male BA.
