I saw it on July 13th, so I guess it is unlikely that it's a Spring Azure.

It's late in the year to seem Spring Azures. It's full-blown Summer Azure time here. Is the spotting date correct? If it was seen this spring, I'd say Spring Azure.

Logan, thank you!

On the North American Butterfly Association website it says there are Spring Azure Blues in that area. Do you think it is one of those?

Azure (Celastrina sp.) This on is a female. This one is pretty beaten up and hard to identify.
