Eastern Tailed-blue

This one had me fooled today...........he's lost his tails ! That gorgeous blue makes up for no tails though.

These have pretty much disappeared from my area, glad to see they are still around somewhere!

I followed one of these guys around my garden, but every time he lit he closed his wings...and his underside is not blue, it's gray...and I had to settle for a pic of a gray butterfly with little blue tufts visible to suggest his upside colour!! Great shot, as always!!

Thanks !
Lori I know exactly what you mean.........they almost always close their wings. But every once in a while, especially on a nice sunny day, I'll find one that's sunning with wings wide open ! It's a rare treat !
