Author's notes

I'm guessing this is a salt-bush blue? Also flying around with these were common grass-blues.

Thanks Lisa. It's looking quite fresh for so late in the season - there are no Saltbush Blue records for June, July or August for the ACT so please get a photo if you see one during those months!

I'll keep a look out - if I can tell the difference between the blues while I'm out and about.
