Hairstreak butterfly? - Satyrium caryaevorus

Hairstreak butterfly? - Satyrium caryaevorus
Concord, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA
August 12, 2019
Size: 3/4 inch?
Thanks for the id! I've seen some discussion on here about the similarities between hickory and banded hairstreaks. If I read correctly banded are more common. Are there some distinguishing features that make this a hickory? thanks! I'm posting a second picture of the same individual that shows the wings better.
