Bnp circle plots in grand view. Base of thistle. About 14cm diameter with constant in and out of wasps. I have visited this plot weekly all summer and this is the first I noticed this enormous nest. I could easily have walked right into it.
Male perching on highest features in open grassland (SW grand view alley of bnp). Lots of zooming and perching
Viewed this large hairstreak (almost little wood satyr size) along the forest trail at Indigo Lake. Identified as a Striped Hairstreak based on orange cap field mark on hind wing. There has been some disagreement though, so please let me know what you think.
