Short-tailed Blue in Bordeaux

This female Short-tailed Blue is a tick for me and a surprise one at that.  It was taken in the same clump as the damselfly in the previous post.  I was busy getting to grips with the damselfly and this little stunner appeared in front of me.  Luckily I had already taken some shots of the damselfly and could then concentrate on the blue.  You can just see the tail extension on the hind wing.
