    Wow you certainly have some morning dew there! A fine shot, I like the composition, just wondering id a slightly looser crop with al the leaf in would improve further? The little tail is well shown.
    Colours exposure etc all look good. This year has been a bad year for common blues (which are similar) on my patch. Having seen the recent programme by Sir David Attenborough on Extinction I have to agree it really is staring us in the face, the insect population in general has really crashed, the shore birds are here but in overall fewer numbers, even rabbits are not commonly seen in the fields around here.

    Lovely butterfly with dew. I like the composition as it is, Can't do much about the oof leaf in foreground. The butterfly is sharp throughout. Great image!
