Joy. Back here at last! I literally saw a Queen flying parallel to the airplane as we taxied in. Humidity drenched me in a half hour. Went back to a spot that was jumping two years ago. Camera wanly from heat, but iPhone got enough.

Description from Wikipedia

Polyommatinae, the blues, are a subfamily of gossamer-winged butterflies (Lycaenidae). It was long used to assign taxa of unclear relationships, and its contents are in need of revision. Several genera might not even belong here.

No range data available.
