Common Blue butterflies sketches

Common Blue butterflies up on the grassy banks of the beach cliffs and in the Marram Grass were enjoying the mornings good weather. The males are striking sitting there with their blue wings open whilst the females are more difficult to spot with their mostly brown wings. Both sexes look the same when they shut their wings and you can only see the undersides and I love the way they alternately move their rear wings up and down.
