Macro Monday – Common blue butterfly

The common blue butterfly is a beautiful and small butterfly. Unfortunately, it is rarely seen in my area now. I remember that in childhood I often saw them in large numbers. I think, butterfly populations of grassland areas have experienced a dramatic decline. Two of the main causes of these butterflies’ disappearance could be the intensification of the agricultural exploitation of the land, and the tendency to abandon them. In both situations there is a degradation of the grasslandand implicitly of the habitat specific to the common blue butterfly.
