Looks like a couple are mating on the left?
Witnessed in my yard today in Waretown NJ.
I don't know insects so it took me until today to ID the little lavender butterflies all over the place yesterday. These are them. :) I couldn't get a picture because they DO NOT sit still for more than a second!
smaller and brighter in coloration than the one observed earlier
