A New Born

By taggart  
The New Born

I went out looking for hair streaks today---no hairstreaks but The AZURES must be hatching--- but which ones-- either Summer, Autumn or one of our local variety--- the Appalachian Azure. They are tiny, about 1/2 inch---1 inch wide if one is lucky enough to see them wide open.

This one appears to be very newly born-- crisp and complete---- and ready to sip!

Thanks to Philip_H for a UA for the "Buggy Sunday" and Nezih and PamelaJean for UA's for that Silly Butterfly.

Beautiful azure blue! Love the delicate pattern, a bit like our holly blues with a bit of chalkhil zigzag .
Well composed,too. Alas hairstreaks have been more than scarce this year.

Stunning would appear to be the repeated description, Jennn, and I for one will not disagree with that adjective.
