I am not fully convinced of this one being Plebejus idas. The dark margin on both wings is often more pronounced and/or has stronger markings. My guess would be Polyommatus icarus, Common Blue or Hauhechelbläuling. Do you have any other shot, specially a ventral shot??http://www.butterfly-guide.co.uk/species...http://www.lepiforum.de/cgi-bin/lepiwiki...http://www.eurobutterflies.com/species_p...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plebejus_id...Polyommatus icarus:http://www.schmetterling-raupe.de/art/ic...http://www.aphotofauna.com/butterfly_com...http://www.lepinet.fr/especes/nation/lep...
