This little guy, maybe the size of a quarter, was a pretty periwinkle blue on the backs of its wings. I could only get a picture when it landed and had its wings closed, sorry! Columbus area Ohio, wooded backyard, early June.
The color on your image does not look normal. This is one of the Blues, a small small butterfly in the subfamily Polyommatinae, which you can find on BugGuide. We are postdating your letter to go live later in June while we are out of the office.
