No Expert

Not an expert on Butterflies but would go for Brown Argus after looking in various book's.

I was going for Common Blue!!
Brown Argus is distinctly brighter in colouring. In my book, the 'red' edge markings go right to the top of the top wings. But i am not positive about this ID!

no luck

Well you have me thinking again now will have another look.I do think it look's rather faded and one wing is damaged.I am not positive on either one so will have to sit on the fence on this one.
