  1. It depends on the color inside the wings (blue or brown) and if in the inferior wing if there is little orange spot.
    One of mine that seems to be the same than yours :

    Michael this is not the Eastern Tailed Blue. Here is a link to my page for your comparison:

    It is an Azure, most likely the Spring Azure

    I checked the database for butterflies in your area, and the only Azure for Broome County is the Spring. But if the shot was taken elsewhere, here is the link for you to see what other Azure options it might be.

    Now that Spring is in the air, I’m looking forward to seeing what you will find this butterflying season!
