Eastern Tailed Blue on Butterfly Weed by 

Canon SX40 HS
Yet another beautiful butterfly photographed in the fields full of wildflowers I discovered in Highland Heights, Ky. USA

My name is Ron Russell. I have lived in Newport, Kentucky since 1986.
My interest in photography as a hobby goes back to a Minolta camera I found in 1974.I love digital photgraphy because of the freedom it gives me to shoot whatever whenever I want. My Canon SX40 HS is a constant companion.
I’ll add a caption to any photo. Let me know what you want I’ll add it, upload and reply.

    I am pretty sure that this is an Eastern Tailed Blue rather than a Grey Hairstreak. Search Google images for ‘Eastern Tailed Blue’ to see what I mean. The top side can be brown or blue depending on which sex. Nice picture!

  • I do believe you’e right. Guess I’ll have to change the title. Thanks for the complement and the info.

    A lovely, delicate looking butterfly. The contrasting colour of the flower is wonderful making it a gorgeous composition.

  • Thank you, Dilouise.
