I am pretty sure it is not a Plebejus argus, but the Common Blue, Polyommatus icarus.

Mm, they were flying and playing together and i thougt the simplest ones are females. :) I willl create a new spotting, ok.

Do you know which species are the others? Or does anybody know?

There are different species! Please, make separate spottings. #1 and #6 are the same picture. #1 and #7 are the same species. In #1 are two species, but only 1 is clearly visible. For IDing this would be quite confusing. Thanks!
