Not sure if this will work as an attachment but if it does it's a blurred image of a blue I saw at Kelling Heath ten days ago. Could it be a Silver Studded or is it the usual Common? The Common's diagnostic spot near the base of the forewing isn't there or is invisible. On the other hand the blu/silver fillings on the outer spots aren't obviously there and the spotting overall looks a little less bold than you might expect on an SS Blue. Any thoughts?

There's your answer, it won't.
