Shades of Blue in Nature

Challenge #228 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
This should be an easy challenge, with so much blue to be seen in the natural world: sky, sea, flowers, birds, mountains in the distance.... but maybe not. The difficulty is for you to show us a picture which is basically blue, and which stands out from all the other entries in the challenge. Other colours may be present in the entry, but blue MUST be the dominant colour. Macro and close-ups welcome. Minimal evidence of man, pets, or man-made constructions, please. Size of your entry: 1,600 pixels on the longer side.
