Butterflying Before the Storm

The day started out stormy with a midday respite of sunshine. Did some weeding in our meadow restoration (photo below) while weather cooperated.

Hurried doing a quick butterfly reconnaissance on a native patch of wildflower, grasses nearby before a thunderstorm rolled in:
Found two species of 'Blue' around flowering lupine (Wyeth's lupine):
Arrowhead Blue

Boisduval's Blue
