Thanks to everyone for all the thumbs and a special thanks to @mellielong and @jmorth for the Acorn

@Fleur569 the body of this butterfly, Common Blue (Polyommatus Icarus), isn't actually white. Here is the original photo plus a better one showing the underside of the wings and another showing the top. This is a female.
