We're supposed to get some rain tonight to cool it off for a few days at least.  It's hot so I hope it does cool down even if the rain misses us, it's humid enough already.  Can you believe it, me saying it's OK if it doesn't rain?  LOL  So today's photo I shot this past weekend.  I got this small butterfly on some Rose of Sharon buds.  I need help with an ID.  As you can see it has a definite blue cast to the upper wing but the pattern of the under wing does not match any of the Blue Butterflies I can find.  The only thing I can come up with that it may be is a Duskywing but it seems too light and they aren't normally blue.   Leave a comment if you know, thanks in advance! 

Update:  I have since been told and checked it out, this is a Marine Blue Butterfly.  It is not normally found in this area and that's why I had so much trouble.  It is found in from South America through Mexico up to Southern Texas, Arizona and California.
