Ceraunus Blue – Hemiargus Ceraunus

This is another small butterfly, similar to the Grey Hairstreak I showed in May. It’s about the same size as can be seen here where a Ceraunus Blue is sharing lunch with a Hairstreak. You can see the blue of the wing top where there is a slight seperation.
It has two completely different appearances. You see the blue tops of the wings as it flitters about but they fold when landed and a more dull disguise is shown.

    Beautiful argus and I love the Hairstreak too. Thanks for sharing.
    In our country we have similar argus with blue upper wings but it has not these nice blue ocellus.
