UK Safari Tip:
An ideal way to catch and observe butterflies without harming them is with a special butterfly net - click here

The photo above is marked with three blue rings which show how you can distinguish the Common Blue from other blue butterflies.

The outer edges of the wings are completely white, with no dark lines radiating out to the edges. The undersides of the wings have orange patches near the outer edges, and the fore wings have a dark spot about 5mms in from the body.
