flying around with the blue males on wet heathland
No interactions present.
I'm sure you're correct Mike, but I don't think I can be certain from the photo alone, they're easier to do from the underside!

This is a very common species on the Dorset and Hampshire heaths; they are getting a bit old now - as shown in the photo. The only other species present that looks similar is the common blue, but these have longer, more pointed wings and the orange spots, if present, make a row of seperate dots - not a band as shown here. A typical female silver-studded blue at the end of its flight period.
