Western Pygmy-Blue: a tiny butterfly

Yesterday I found this Western Pygmy-Blue, a very small butterfly that is listed as having a wing span of only 1/2 to 3/4 inches--and it was very tiny and flighty so hard to photograph. Interestingly I found a record of this species photographed on October 17, 2011 in my county on the ButterfliesAndMoths.org website. It had this note from the person who verified the sighting: "Not uncommonly found in the Arkansas R. valley in late summer and early fall."

Thanks to my friends Dan, Lisa and John for identifying this butterfly for me. SeEtta
