Celastrina ladon ladon

A Spring Azure (Celastrina ladon ladon). If you walk in the woods in the Spring, you may be lucky to spot one of these little guys. They are one of the first butterflies to be seen in Wisconsin in the Spring that doesn't hibernate here. We were lucky to see it—it is a Gossamer and very, very small. It is slightly bluer than in the picture, the photo was a bit overexposed in all my excitement.
