Sighting for January 10, 2016

James Dowdell

Beaver Dam WMA
Cape May County, NJ

Moderator Note: Whew! These Dec/Jan blueberry azures – now recorded in three different areas (Beaver Dam, Lizard Tail, and Belle Plain) by three different observers (Jim D, Will K, and Brian J) – have to send your mind spinning. Jim's dorsal shot here stirs the mix some more. That's a female's pattern. In the usual emergence in March, we generally (always?) see males flying first.
