I photographed female and male Plebejus argus (silver-studded blue) butterflies at rest on heather flowers. They are one of my favourite butterfly species due to the amazing and intricate wing patterns with the individual colours to complement each sex.

I used focus stacking to blur out the heavy background and bring out the detail of the subjects.
