Sooty Azure, female ? AKA Dusky Azure
1/4 -- 1 1/4 inches (19-32 mm)
A profusion of these tiny butterflies seem to be around just now-- very hard to determine just which of the AZURES it is-- Spring, Appalachian, Dusky/Sooty--possibly a local variant ???
I think this one was laying eggs on Queen of the Prairie buds.
f 3.2, 1/200, 0ev, ISO 200
Wow what an amazing capture. Beautiful colours on the butterfly and the detail superb. Well done Jennnn, love it!

Lovely capture, Jenn. It reminds me of our holly blue, which has a similar underside. Unfortunately that is not much help in your part of the world.
