You Like Me, You Really Like Me!

Success! Spotted yesterday in my very own front garden a hairstreak butterfly! I can't say which species it is- if it's a Strymon melinus, then it must have left its tail at home that day. I read about which plants will attract what as the day is long, but seeing it in action means a job well done! It's currently enjoying the bounty of eriogonum grande rubescens.

  1. That is one lovely butterfly. Kudos to you for creating a habitat for a hairstreak. Can't say I'm familiar with it, but oh my, would I love to invite him/her to a garden party. Alice
