    One of my favourite butterflies. I saw them in Mauritius. I couldn’t believe how small they were. So small, in fact, that my little Canon compact had real difficulty focusing on them! I have been enjoying the blues you have been posting recently. My favourite group of butterflies.

      They truly are tiny and difficult to photograph! I love the Blues too! My husband always says, “it’s just another one of those little brown guys we see all the time, do you really need to photograph it?” I’m sure that’s what it looks like to most people. But they are such gorgeous little guys, with so many interesting details. I have a few more Blues from Taiwan, but I’m waiting for my two new Books to arrive before I make an ID…can hardly wait!
