Silvery Blue

Silvery Blue
I believe this is the Silvery Blue, Glaucopsyche lygdamus, but am always willing to be corrected. There were a large number of these and of Acmon Blues at a muddy spot in the road when this photo was taken. The road was a Forest Service road in Derby Canyon near Peshastin, Washington.

Actually, Ron, our garden is quite a mess these days for I can't keep up with it but I've always worked at having plants and the beginning and end of the season so spread the flowers as long a time as possible.
