A Long-taile Blue (Lampides boeticus) from the 2,032m summit of Doi Lang in far north Thailand. This species has a wide distribution from Europe, North Africa, Asia and Australasia. Wingspan 25mm.
Another one captured with my Sigma 150-500mm, hand held. I was happy with the outcome.

Hello Chris.
It will be quite sometime until we see butterflies like this flitting about here in Ohio, as winter still has a ways to go. I love the natural coloration and excellent detail you managed to capture. Obtaining this wonderful image while hand holding your 500MM is quite a feat. Great job!!
