Canada Thistle, Gray Hairstreak

Since I'm just a butterfly beginner, everything that I see is interesting and new.  I believe this is a Gray Hairstreak,  Strymon melinus.  I captured this image last Friday afternoon, August 27, on the Delaware Wildlife Area.



  1. Hi Tom...I guess I missed this post ..probably because I hate spider and I did not want to see that one you posted !!
    This is a nice picture... beautiful butterfly !!

  2. This was the first year that I saw the Gray Hairstreak and like you wasn't sure what it was. It's a neat butterfly! Wish I could get some better shots of it. This is very nice!
