Notes from the field, essays, and observations.
A little, fast-moving butterfly from my area:
What a beauty! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a hairstreak. I want to!
Butterfly watching is great – start by looking in meadows and hilltops on sunny days. In North America, many hairstreaks fly late June to early July. Have fun looking!
i can feel the softness 🙂
We have the gray hairstreak in Texas, too, along with a slew of other hairstreak species, including some similar to the gray.
Most hairstreaks have a short season up here, late June to July. Gray hairstreak (and the similar White M) are the exception, with multiple flights.
And of course down here in central Texas, where it’s so much warmer, we see hairstreaks (and other butterflies) for much of the year.
