    What?
    You do, too ?!?!? (Is loving this kind of green infectious and spreading???)










    :wink:


    And are you sure this one's a moth?
    Not a kind of butterfly?

    what you have here is a butterfly and not a moth. i am not sure of the variety but it's one of the blues. a moth has a feathery looking antennae and your butterfly does not.

    nice shots by the way!

    luck!

    yes, i think i have been infected... (but in a good way, right?!) i like all colors, but the green bg in that second photo is particulary pleasing...

    Thanx guys I was quite pleased with these.

    Squacks: I realized that after doing some searching may be some sort of Icaricia? I tried to edit the main title but it didn't change.

    This page had some ID's that looked that pretty close... especially the "Blues" at the bottom of the page... http://www.rlephoto.com/butterflies/000gossamerwings.htm

    that's what i thought too... then i came across this "Key" that is supposed to explain how to ID them... :er: it's all way over my head, i was looking up words in the dictionary left and right... :lol: http://www.ndsu.nodak.edu/ndsu/ndmoths/key.htm


    i used this page to ID some butterflies that I shot a few weeks ago --> http://www.npwrc.usgs.gov/resource/distr/lepid/bflyusa/bflyusa.htm. It was pretty helpful.
