Cindy, Sam, and I went down to Zahnd’s Natural Area for a little while yesterday. Lovely fall day; a few wildflowers are still persisting, with the predominant ones being the Asters – this is likely a Symphyotrichum species. This Eastern Tailed Blue Azure butterfly (I think that’s the correct ID) sat still for me for a few seconds. (Click on the photo for a larger image.)
