Sighting Record 1176193

Observation Notes: 
I was remarking to a fellow observer on how much whiter one of the blue butterflies was than others of the 50+ at the dry mud spot congregation. They all were very docile, we could sit down next to them. they hardly noticed us. When she put out her finger, the whiter one climbed on it, and I took this photo.

Sighting Record 1176012

Observation Notes: 
Butterfly was perching and occasionally patrolling a stretch of gravel path at the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge. Saw this same butterfly perched on the same leaf at 3:21pm as I was leaving the refuge. Temperature 74 F when first observed, 80 F when observed the second time. Clear, sunny day. Little or no breeze. Elevation 115 ft above sea level. Perched on a Pacific Ninebark-Physocarpus capitalus leaf, this is the second time I found this species of butterfly using this species of plant as a perch along a path. First time was also along the Tualatin River, but in a City of Tualatin park along an asphalt path. Also saw, but unable to photograph visually small ( compared to Woodland Skipper), orange skippers (maybe 4 individuals) and brown butterflies (maybe 6 individuals in different places along the path) that might be a Common Wood Nymph as I have photographed that species on the refuge in years past.
