Or maybe a dotted blue?..or? Not quite sure as minute differences in these tiny butterflies make them rather difficult to identify if you’re not an entomologist or lepidopterist. Going on my best educated guess though and hopefully it’s correct but, if someone more knowledgeable knows I’m wrong then please feel free to correct me. 😊



During our 2011 trip to the mini island of Mackinac in Michigan, we had the chance to visit a house of butterflies on display during the summer season.


A little dark as this was shot in the shade but, caught some pretty good detail in this close up of this little insect. This little flutter bug I think was ready to retire for the day as even the wind or me up in its face with my lens did not cause it to budge from its place.


One of the various and neatly colored types of tiger moths that seem to be abundant around the end summer in our desert.
