Southern Spring Azure - Celastrina ladon - Male
Paris Mountain State Park, Greenville County, South Carolina, USA
March 30, 2006
There were several of these butterflies along the trail. Most were too active to photograph, but this one stood still long enough.

From browsing BugGuide, it looks like it could be the Southern Spring Azure.

Had a busy winter and start to spring; this is my first bug photo of 2006.

Confirmed
ID by Dr. David Wright - 5.xii.06

 
Gracias
Tony, thanks for arranging that, and thanks for Dr. Wright for his time.
