Small blue butterfly

NB_2009(7a-Long Island, NY)July 19, 2014

Wondering if someone can identify this small blue butterfly I found in my garden. I'm in Sufffolk county NY if that helps. Thanks.

Has the distinct posture and form of a moth, facing down, perhaps a tortrix moth.

Rotating the image to the left emphasizes this.

I'll await other opinions before researching the ID further.

I looked at quite a few moths, all I can come up with is most likely a noctuid moth rather than a tortrix. Odd little moth, cannot find a pattern match for ID.

But I did find the ID for someone else's moth while looking for yours!
