Blue butterfly

Common blue (Polyommatus icarus)
Description:

I thought this might be an Adonis blue when I took the shot and they are known from the location, but I think the margins are not quite chequered enough - ie the black radial marks don't quite extend to the wing margin, so I think this is a Common blue.
