Holly Blue (Celastrina argiolus)

Observed: 14th August 2010 By: JevoUK
Common Or Holly Blue?

Im not sure if this is a Common Blue or a Holly Blue Butterfly mainly because of the large black area on the wing tips. Photos I've seen don't have this.

Very definitely a holly blue, but this individual does have an unusually wide black border. Apparently the second brood females do show more black than the spring ones.
