That is way prettier than any Pearl Crescent I've ever seen.

Thank you bayucca, I thought at first this was the Pearl Crescent like I found before, but it didn't really match on the edges of the wings, so I was hoping you would see it. Would you look at this Lycaenid (http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/274... I put what I thought it might be in the notes.....
