Description

I am not at all confident in this ID. Good match based on photos from Wagner’s book and Layberry et al’s description but I am not familiar with the degree of variability in Eastern-tailed Blue. Feeding on Vicia cracca, more typical of ET Blue, but Fabaceae is in Eurosid II clade with Rosaceae, so leaf chemistry somewhat similar to Striped Hairstreak more typical Rosaceae diet. Note tending by ants; typical of Lycaenids.

I was expecting another Northern Duskywing but that doesn't seem to be what I got. It was about the same size but instead of perching in partial shade it settled in the full sun. Cool 22 C and breezy dry afternoon. Pretty worn and one side tattered. Not near the Crown Vetch, down at the Erin Mills Pkway end of the trail.

I picked it up and let it walk on my hand. It looked at me and gladly chose my palm as it’s home...I wanted to hold it forever and it looked like it wanted to stay. But I knew that there are precious moments, where two different beings just connect, and that if these are infinite then they would not be precious anymore. So I let it go and it turned to look at me and then went it’s way.

I think this is an Orange. There were at least 5 Sulphurs in the newly opening Purple Loosestrife. 3 were quite pale and looked good for Clouded Sulphurs. Two seemed much more orange. I'm not confident id'ing these yet though.

These photos show why it's worth taking random photos of a flying butterfly. I wasn't sure if this was a Satyr (probable) or a Pearly Eye (possible but not as likely). I wouldn't be able to report it if I hadn't taken 12 photos, 2 of which show it well enough to id. I just set the camera on 'sports mode' and hope for the best.
