Striped Hairstreak

I was working outside the house this morning wondering where I might go for my butterfly walk for the day.

Thinking I might not have time when this fellow landed on one of our hanging baskets, resting for about an hour on

a tuberous begonia leaf. It is a Striped Hairstreak, a species I’ve not seen before. I had time to change lenses, line up,

and take a number of photos with my macro lens. Tricky because the depth of field is so narrow. Lots of trial and error.

This was the most co-operative butterfly I’ve ever met!
