Not used to seeing Gray Hairstreaks with open wings but 2nd shot seems to confirm this to be a gray hairstreak
One of several that were observed at Hornsby's Bend today. First personal documented sighting.
There were at least 6 individuals found during a five minute search.
9 plants, garden, at least 6 monarchs, and one queen caterpillar.
Thanks to Greg Lasley for the location tip. A pretty isolated population, Bill Dempwolf doesn't know of any others within 200 miles. Neat!
