Silver-studded blue

I shot this butterfly during my vacation in Drenthe which is in the northern part of The Netherlands. Near the house that we rented was an overgrown bike race track. There were a lot of Chamomile flowers and other butterfly attracting flowers there. It was a bit of a nature photographers heaven.

A few of these Silver-studded blues were flying around and they were easy to shoot while they were warming up in the sun.
