First spring azure!

On my way home from work today I caught sight of something fluttering by the side of the road, and when I looked over, I saw a shimmer of blue, definitely a spring azure (Celastrina echo) and my first-of-the-year butterfly! I couldn't be happier, and with the weather forecast supposed to be sunny and in the 60s tomorrow, it's time to take a drive down to the Deschutes River near Maupin and spend the day with butterflies and tiger beetles.
These photos are from my trip last year on May 15th...
