Good morning to everyone!
Well, here we are with yet another butterfly, our last one for a while. This one is called “Northern Blue”. This butterfly is a true northern species. It is found across northern Canada to Alaska, then across Siberia and all the way to Scandinavia. It is a small butterfly with a wingspan up to 1 1/4 inches (about 31mm). They are a beautiful blue on top of their wings, and a silver gray underneath for the male.
The female is dark brown above with a wavy orange line at the end of each wing, and some blue at the edge. It overwinters as eggs. Its flight time is late June to early August. The prefer to sit with closed wings, I was fortunate to get this one with partially open wings. Have a wonderful day everyone and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
