Sighting Record 1271565

Observation Notes: 
Tiny butterfly, grey-blueish in color. Fast-moving in flight, but once it lit on something, would sit for quite a long time and allowed me to get very close. Apologies that the photo is not very clear. Shown in the photo sitting on a leaf of lettuce. Just prior, it spent a long time sitting on a bit of decaying garden debris, directly on the ground.
Region: 
United States
New York
Kings County
Location Notes: 
Although this is an urban garden, we have more open space around us than most gardens in Brooklyn, and a diverse range of native, butterfly-friendly plants.
