Eastern Tailed Blue
Everes comyntas 3/4-1 inch

This abundant, low flying and very tiny butterfly will be seen in woodlands, lawns and gardens and may produce up to three broods a year in the north.

This image is a re-file, re-processed after some very helpful criticism. He is perched on some chewed off oregano vine.

Thank you to Edmund (Gloustopcat) and MandyD for recent and highly appreciated User Awards!
