Western Pygmy-Blue - Encore

The Western Pygmy-Blue's (Brephidium exile) are performing very nicely at the moment, with a dozen or more taking up evening and nighttime residence in our Pink Mulhy Grass.

As a follow up to last week's Western Pygmy-Blue Butterfly article, here is a portrait of one.  Be sure to click on it for a full sized view.

Again, that stick it is sitting on is actually a blade of grass, just to give you an idea of how tiny this butterfly is.  This photo was shot with a Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro, at its closest point where it could still focus.

As always, the photo is available for purchase on
