Amid surfers and skaters, a tiny blue butterfly has scored a telling victory in its fight against extinction.

The rare El Segundo blue has returned to two popular beaches southwest of Los Angeles where it has not been seen in decades.

This is no mere academic sighting of a rare species.

Scientists say they are surprised at the resurgence.


Damn facts, they never fit the theory.

They sound like the Connor Blues in NH, also threatened, but showing a resurgence last year.
