This small butterfly is Zizeeria karsandra (Moore, 1865), aka the dark grass blue. I found it earlier this week in Akrotiri Marsh, Cyprus.
This is an afternoon capture taken with Nikon D750 and Nikon 105 mm f/2.8 VR, with a 1/4s shutter speed at f/11 and ISO 100.
Thanks a lot for stopping by, your comments and feedback are always welcomed and very much appreciated!
