On Tick Trefoil or a similar legume.

Moved from ID Request.

Blue - family Lycaenidae
It's the larva of one of the Blue butterflies. Several of them feed on legumes. Eastern Tailed-Blue seems most likely. There is a somewhat similar caterpillar at:

Someone else pointed out that it looks more like a Grey Hairstreak, which does seem to be a more likely match. ???

Mine was really a shot in the dark, Ken. I forgot that Gray Hairstreak fed on legumes further south. Our very local populations are restricted to Sweetfern, so I forget about its broad preferences in the US.
Thanks for the help!
