Description

I was walking along 22nd St when all of a sudden there was a very loud buzzing sound, and these two insects hit the hood of a parked car with a thunk. The wasp was nearly the size of my index finger and maneuvered its prey across the hood of the car, stinging it repeatedly. It flew over to the wrought iron trim around a street tree, where it appeared to secure its grip on the cicada, hanging from the metal by one leg. Then it labored over to the tree trunk, and very quickly using its wings and its legs, scaled the tree trunk to a height of 8-10 meters. From there it launched itself into the air and flew west up the street, gaining elevation until it cleared the roof of a four-story brownstone and disappeared!

Description

Stunned to see this tiny marvel in my favorite local dogbane patch around noon today. I saw a small blue fluttering over the flowers and assumed it was Cupido or Celastrina, but when it landed, I could see the bold ventral pattern and smaller size. The creature was very jittery, startled into the air frequently by the many wasps and bees and by my own movements. On the wing, it flashed clear, pale blue. I managed a couple of poor photos with my phone before it disappeared. I pulled out my DSLR and hunted the area for an hour or so but couldn’t find it again.

The ventral forewing pattern seems to match L. cassius, but apparently there is a “light” form of L. marina, which is a species believed to be a more frequent vagrant?

To me it seemed unlikely that this was either of the two more common species, as the leaves on this one are really huge, like 4 inches long.

But I really don't know how to ID the Hornbeam Copperleaf , especially considering this plant is not in flower or fruit.

So I could be completely wrong.

Could this just be a giant example of Common Copperleaf?
