This year has been slow for the butterfly watchers. I have seen only a few butterflies per day recently, and had a streak of about a week where I did not see any.
Yesterday was hot and rainy, with dark clouds all day. Not good butterfly weather. But I did manage to see four species–maybe eight or nine individuals. One of them was this male eastern tailed-blue.
The eastern tailed-blue is Everes comyntas.
