I spent some time, yesterday, trying to photograph blues on the sickle-keel=
ed lupines at West Rocky Prairie in Thurston County. I got several dozen pi=
ctures of blues. The only views of ventral hind wings suggested that the on=
ly blues I was seeing were Puget Blues (Icaricia icarioides blackmorei). I =
Hs field notes that indicated I had seen Puget Blues at West Rocky Prairie =
in 2004 but I can=E2=80=99t find any pictures from those observations so I =
was feeling a bit uncertain. Perhaps others have seen the species there rec=
ently (Cheryl Schultz has, I believe). I noticed the inaturalist didn=E2=80=
=99t have any records at that particular prairie. I put 4 of my photos in m=
y Flickr collection if anyone wants to have a look and critique my identifi=
cations. If anyone has tips on identifying Puget Blues from Silvery Blues b=
ased solely on a dorsal view, I=E2=80=99d love to hear them. The various de=
scriptions of shades of blue don=E2=80=99t help me much. Guess I need some =
kind of color chart to help me with descriptors like cerulean blue (I=E2=80=
=99ll check my Crayola 64 pack).
