Ceraunus Blue Butterfly

Blues and Azures. Ceraunus Blue Butterfly on spent Coreopsis flowers. Gainesville, Florida. 2012.

This is a different butterfly, but is very similar to the one I posted yesterday. Ceranunus Blues have just one eye spot, while the Cassius (yesterday's photo) has 2. Their inner wings are a beautiful bright blue, but I couldn't catch it with its wings open. It had just finished raining and was wet and dark outside. I like the way this photo takes on a sepia feel on its own.
