moo, could you help with the names of these beauties, please :)
It looks to me like the beautiful butterfly is a common blue (Polyommatus icarus). These are far from common in the UK anyway, though we have had many more this year then normal as for once, we sort of had a summertime :). I am guessing she was very blue when she opened her wings? There are lots of blue butterflies in the Polyommatus genus though so its very possible it was another type of blue.
Then there is the lovely bee on the left. I am not a hymenoptera person but if I were a gambler, I would wager towards it being a solitary bee of some kind. I shall check with a hymenopterist at work tomorrow! Watch this space...
Then lastly there is the flower. I am afraid aside from it being really beautiful I have no idea what it is. Is it a chrysanthemum of some kind?
Very very beautiful series of captures irrespective of names!
Yes, it is blue (but what type of blue? maybe bright :))! I'll post some more photos later on.
Thank you very much, moo! I think maybe the flower is kind of Aster. Maybe Jet Link could help as well.
Thank you so much, Marco and Ani! I am delighted you like the duet-series! :***)
