These are good pictures, and Tthe top view does help. The male Acmon Blue in Calfornia has a hind wing band that is paler and more pinkish than that of the very similar Lupine Blue, so it would seem that it is the Acmon Blue. Both top and bottom views of smoe butterflies are needed for identification - unfortunately many do not cooperat , holding their wings either open or closed most of the time when perched.
