Perranporth blues

An evening visit to the sand dunes at Perranporth revealed about 30 Common Blues last night. I arrived a bit later than I would have wished and most of them were docile and ready to settle for the night. Just one opened its' wings briefly to reveal its' stunning azure blue colour.

The above and below images are of the same individual but a subtle change of position alters the background colour and foliage to give a completely different perspective.


  1. Great images Steve summer must be here at last

  2. I love the way the insects stand out against the backgrounds Steve.

  3. Brilliant shots as usual Steve. A great 3D effect.
