Hello There, Blue Eyes!

IMG_9147This sweet little butterfly quietly posed for me on a blossom of Narcissus ‘Ice Follies’ and though I searched online to find out what kind she was, I wasn’t successful. My guess is she’s a type of Azure Butterfly. Are there any lepidopterists out there who can identify her?

Butterflies symbolize transformation. My visitor heralds the renewal of spring here on our seven and a half acres. What a beautiful blessing!

    Lovely capture Eliza! And how nice of her to sit long enough for you to take her photo. I chased butterflies all around last summer trying to get a decent shot of one, but they were all too busy gathering nectar to sit still long enough for me. 😉 Sorry I cant’ help you out on identifying her…

    What a beautiful photo. I love the soft browns and the yellow suphur streak on the shoulder. I wish I could help you with an id.

  4. I’ll do some searching for you…see what I can turn up.

    It’s a lovely little creature. 🙂

    Her little face looks like a fuzzy puppy. Very very sweet.

    love how you captured the softness of this little beauty. I have found similiar ones, but never could find them either. I wonder if they are different colors.

    What a gorgeous butterfly – amazing shots!

  10. Something that always strikes me with your photos is that they are always so balanced- the colors, the shapes. I feel peace when I look at them.
