Mediterranean Blue Butterfly near Riyadh – Record by Mansur Al Fahad

Mansur Al Fahad took a few macro photographs of some Mediterranean Blue Butterflies at Heet village south of Riyadh in early May. Identification was confirmed by looking at the uppersides of the butterflies. The area has some farms and semi-desert land and these butterflies are plentiful this year, as the good rains have helped the emergence of good vegetarian cover. I thank Mansur for sending me the details, identification and permission to use them on my website.
