Common blue

Thank you for correcting me, I can certainly see it now. I've had a look and found the common blue and silver studded blue look very similar - could you tell me how you distingush them please?

distinguish

the silver studded tends to have more colour at the tip of the underside of the wing. it's the only difference i can really see, based on your picture
