It's beautiful, but I was wondering how that could possibly be the name of that blue butterfly? Then I found the photos at the link below and see that there is a lot of variation.

Happy WW!

Wow! Gorgeous butterfly. Funny thing... I've seen a lot of butterflies on our gravel driveway and I noticed that the butterfly in your photo was on gravel also. I wonder what the deal is with that...
Thank you so much for stopping by and linking up over at my place. Happy WW! :)
