Agriades opilete - Cranberry Blue
Rather more dull in shade than closely related species, this is a high mountain species in southern regions of it's range. I seem to miss it frequently on my trips to the area, I always seem to be too early or late.
My best butterfly photographs are now from my encounters in Northern Norway where they were emergent late during my stay.
So below are the Arctic cousins of the above Alpine inhabitants.
