Picking a few last cherry tomatoes I saw an unfamiliar butterfly darting around the Tithonias nearby. Usually I see various skippers here, occasionally a monarch or swallowtail. This butterfly was very different: it had an irridescent green-blue back, and the forewings short but with long narrow hindwings. Also the body rather furry, maybe it's a moth?
I have seen (but not photograhed) all of these in my yard: tiger swallowtail, black swallowtail, cabbage white, clouded sulfer, gray hairstreak, pearl crescent, painted lady, red admiral, common buckeye, monarch.
The one pictured here I think is a long-tailed skipper!
