Corralitas Drive: Marine Blue

Photo: Diane Edwardson, July 14, 2014.  Despite the fact this tiny butterfly with an inch wide wingspan is mostly brownish, it is a Marine Blue.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

The blue is positively iridescent in the sun & is barely visible on the backside of the wings, near the body in this photo.  Thanks again to The Bugman of Mt Washington for identifying this Plumbago loving species.
