Common Beauty

The summer azure, Celastrina neglecta, is a common butterfly right now.  I have posted a number of photos of this species.  However, I can’t resist posting just one more.

    That is a beautiful image of both the butterfly and the flower – what is the flower by the way?

    • The flower is either white clover of alsike clover. Both are considered yard weeds and stick up a few inches above the surface of the ground after the lawn has been mowed. Much money is spent by some people to eliminate these plants from the landscape.

      My opinion is that the yard itself is the weed.
