Polyommatus bellargus on white against beige background. The male Adonis Blue has brilliantly-coloured blue wings that gives this butterfly its name, and can be found flying low over vegetation, seeking out the less-conspicuous females that are a rich chocolate brown in colour.
The Adonis Blue is found throughout most of the warmer parts of Europe but is absent from Norway, Sweden, Finland, the Mediterranean islands, and all except the southern counties of Britain. Beyond Europe it also occurs in Turkey, and eastward to the Black Sea.
