Butterfly

I tried in vain to take some photos of all the butterflies in my front garden but this tiny little one was the only one willing to pose for me!

Lovely Gee !

That's lovely - can anybody identify it?

I think it's a Brown Argus.

Look at next photo, Phil, it was blue :)

I've looked.....the next photo is of a Common Blue. This one looks like a Brown Argus to me......if the two photo's are of the same butterfly.....just proves I know little about them !! I'm off to sulk.

Sorry, Phil, they are the same butterfly. Please don't sulk - I had to search Google to find out what it was :)

I've looked at both pictures, read all the comments and still don't know what it is, Gee - am I missing something?

Sorry, Wagger. This photo and the next one are of the same butterfly! I think it is a common blue (just from looking on Google). It was small, probably about half the size of a Peacock. The wing colour outside was very different to inside and does, as Phil suggested, look very similar to a Brown Argus! This is probably as clear as mud, I'm not very good at explaining :)

Not well named at all in my view - that comes nowhere near describing such a beautiful creature, blue yes, common? NO!!!!!!

Another great one! Look at the stripes on the antenna :)
