Common Blues at dusk

Common Blue habitually congregate at dusk just before they go to roost.  I saw eight males in a fairly small square area of about about 2' but these two were the only ones together.  It was much duller yesterday evening and what a difference the weather makes.  Common Blue was the only butterfly species I saw last night at this site.
