Eastern Pygmy Blue
|Eastern Pygmy Blue|
On April 15th, I drove out to Merritt Island to look for birds. I didn't find much. It's been so dry that much of the mudflats are all dried up, and Biolab Rd is still closed. It would have been nearly a complete loss were it not for this Eastern Pygmy Blue that showed up at the pumphouse. It took a while for the butterfly to cooperate with the limitations of my 400mm lens. I almost went and got my macro and came back, but I decided I didn't have enough time. Anyway, it's a pretty little blue.
