Butterfly? Hi bugman,
Love your website, it is an education and a delight! I took the attached photo last summer next to the sea shore in the north of Scotland, do you have any idea what it is? Is it a type of “*Coral Hairstreak*” perhaps? Kindest regards,
Hairstreaks are in the family Lycaenidae, the Gossamer Winged Butterflies. This is a Blue, also in the family Lycaenidae, but in the subfamily Polyommatinae.
