Spring Azure Butterfly

 The Spring Azure is a very small blue butterfly. Most often seen with its wings folded up, it became a challenge for me to photograph it with its wings spread. It took a long time, but I eventually got it.
Note the difference in field marks on these under wings.  It is my understanding there are six variations of field marks on a group of butterflies all known as Spring Azure.
 These butterflies can be seen in a variety of locations throughout the Avalon.
