Joined Pygmy Grass Blue

I chanced upon a pair of Pygmy Grass Blues mating and the pair attracted quite a bit of attention from other Pygmy Grass Blues. The butterfly in the foreground was trying to break up the pair and it was quite amusing to observe and photograph the butterflies. I'm assuming that the smaller butterflies are male.Here's a different view as the three butterflies moved around including flying around. Finally, the pair were left in peace to finish what they started.This is the color of the top wing of a male Pygmy Grass Blue, this one stopped in front of me this morning. Pretty isn't it. Most would have walked by without noticing the tiny butterfly on the flower as it is no more than 5mm big.
