Beautiful! I wouldn't know if the subtle difference in the hind-wing spots were species or just individual differences. Hope you'll write later how to tell.

These are gorgeous photos of gorgeous butterflies. You'll have to tell us how to tell them apart. Amazing color!

I think the blue glassy has larger, lighter blue spots than the dark blue. They are both beautiful!

Gorgeous photos!

I think the differences have to do with the amount of blue and the shape of that blue.
These are absolutely beautiful butterflies and your photos are excellent!

I think I see a few subtle differences in the pattern, but I had to look hard. Very beautiful photos.

They look very similar to me. Since you've told us that they are different butterflies I looked really, really hard and found some subtle differences. Well done to you for knowing which one is which ;-)

Both are incredible photos of exquisite butterflies. I noticed the deeper color on the one but not sure if this was the lighting. Will be interested to find out the difference.
