The Green-Underside Blue (Glaucopsyche alexis) is a butterfly of the Lycaenidae family. It is found in Europe.
The butterfly flies from April to July depending on the location.

I licenidi appartengono ad una delle più belle famiglie di lepidotteri, generalmente di piccole e medie dimensioni e vivacemente colorate. Sono farfalle che difficilmente passano inosservate per via delle colorazioni azzurre o dorate. Il dimorfismo è molto accentuato, il maschio e la femmina presentano colorazioni differenti, il lato inferiore delle ali è molto diverso dalla parte superiore e spesso presentano una colorazione mimetica rispetto all'ambiente in cui vivono ( picchiettate di macchie scure e piccole disegni arancione). Posate sull'erba ad ali chiuse spesso è quasi impossibile individuarle. Solo camminando sui prati e le zone erbose è possibile apprezzarne la bellezza, allorché al passaggio si alzano in volo, mettendo in mostra i colori e le le sfumature delle loro ali. Generalmente è il maschio ad essere il più colorato, presentando una vasta gamma di sfumature di azzurro, rispetto alla colorazione delle femmine che si presentano marroni o con colori più smorti

The licenidi belong to one of the most beautiful family of moths, generally small and medium-sized and brightly colored. Butterflies are unlikely to go unnoticed because of the color blue or gold. Dimorphism is very pronounced, the male and female have different colors, the undersides of the wings is very different from the top, and often have a camouflage with the environment in which they live (spotted with small dark spots and orange design). Lay on the grass with folded wings is often almost impossible to locate. Just walking on the lawns and grassy areas can appreciate its beauty, when to step rise in flight, showing the colors and shades of their wings. Usually the male is to be the most colorful, presenting a wide range of shades of blue than the color of the females that appear brown or pale colors

Good day and good weekend
