Olive Hairstreak

What I don't know about butterflies could fill a book. Not sure why nobody ever though to write one. I'd buy it for sure.


Anyway, someone else identified this as an Olive Hairstreak (aka Juniper Hairstreak) and they were all excited about it, so I took a few shots myself. They waded into the tick-filled poison ivy. I, on the other hand, stood back a ways. I thought that it went quite nicely with the background colors. Too bad I was too lazy to get a really killer shot. Hey, my feet hurt!
