Common Blue butterflies (Polyommatus icarus) are found throughout the country. Nevertheless, encountering this handsome male here was especially nice.
What say you of the stunning blue seen here on a morning with crystal clear blue skies and 7,300 feet above sea level? His blue evokes . . .
I was more than surprised to see cows grazing right nearby, at the mountain’s peak. My guide, Eran was not surprised to see them at all. Remarkable. See our post of the Cow on the . . .

Thank you. This was my 3rd post of an Israeli butterfly. I have several others to post (I recently scanned 93 images to add to my posted 60).
