Another butterfly image today. Image 028 is of Lang’s Short-tailed Blue also photographed in Menorca (pretty much about 1 metre away from yesterdays post! 😉 ). Being about 14mm from the back of the tail to the tip of the nose, these blue butterflies are absolutely minute and are very difficult to keep an eye on them when they are flying, especially when warmed up under a spanish sun! If you compare this butterfly with the Cleopatra butterfly from yesterdays post with the size of the Ragwort’s yellow flower heads you can appreciate how small this butterfly really is! I really like those two irridescent gems at the back of the wing.

Lang’s Short-tailed Blue; Leptotes pirithous, Menorca, Balearic Islands, Spain, Oct, 2011.
