Gorgeous, gorgeous, Susan Louise!
I'm so jealous of those of you who get green hairstreaks!

Pretty butterfly and picture. I didn't even know there were green colored hairstreaks.

Hello Sherry and Patti,

Thanks ladies...[linked image]
Everyday I hope to see new butterflies grace our gardens with their presence. It's just starting to pick-up here with butterfly visitors. Today we had 5 Red Admirals, 2 Monarchs, 3 Cabbage Whites, a Eastern Tailed-Blue, a Labrador Sulphur, a possible Orange Alfalfa (white form) Sulphur, Cloudless Sulphur, and a Question Mark. A few I'll post pics of later...time to make dinner now.
Enjoy your weekend! [linked image]

A friend of mine who has a place in southern Ohio just sent me some pics of JHs that he took this month. A few of the pics were of JHs laying eggs. I think is the best one.

I wish JHs got to central Ohio. The way the green on their wings shimmers is way cool.

What a great picture, JC!

Green hairstreaks are such gorgeous little things!

Since the JH pic I posted is now gracing the forum home page, I'll let you all know the picture comes courtesy of Jim and Jennifer Suchy. Jennifer spotted it and Jim took the pic.

I don't see this Hairstreak very often. It is a beauty.

Nice photo of a pretty little butterfly. I'm not sure which hairstreak I see here, but they are quite small. Sometimes I miss spotting them because of their size.

It is not so much which, there are a lot of species, check out the list for your area and you will begin to see the problem. At least they aren't as bad as skippers.
