  1. Itty bitty - like less than an inch across...American Copper Butterfly (Lycaena phlaeas)

  2. I do not know him but I found 2 today, hunting dragons, and they are gone, that were less than 8 MM, they flew so fast and erratic, I never got a shot, but they were incredible small, one being blue gray and the other green.
     
  3. if he wasn't sitting still in the sunlight I would have never spotted him - his bright orange is what caught my eye (I too found him while hunting dragons)
