Chalk Hill Blue butterflies mating. 27th-July-2012

A pair of mating chalk-hill blue butterflies here. The males are easy to spot, but the females can be quite difficult to find. I was lucky enough to watch the very start of this mating pair, because I sighted the female attracting the attention of 3 males, on this flower. I took numerous photos, and even managed to coax the mating pair onto my hand(see my video of them) ;-)
