Hi! This is a lovely photo, but I would like to correct the identification. This is not Common Blue (Polyommatus icarus). Common blue does not have any black marks (chequering) in the white margin; i.e. its white margin does not have those little black marks. This butterfly is Adonis Blue (Lysandra bellargus). Hope this is useful!
