Beautiful Blue Butterflies!

July 17, 2008

I love the colors of these butterflies. They are very striking with a radically different coloration on the underside.

A friend thought they might be “Painted Ladies”, but a search on the net shows otherwise. In trying to identify this one, I believe it is the butterfly shown here:

    Lovely pictures – but I can’t help you identify them! I would need help with identification myself!
