I wandered out to the Buddleia, not expecting to find anything, and,
looking very closely, realized that the small spot that I saw was
actually a tiny butterfly, smaller than my little finger nail.
Extensive searching online leads me to believe it is a Red-banded
While I was pursuing the Hairstreak, a larger butterfly landed for a few
seconds, so I grabbed four shots before it departed. Here is the best
one of a Painted Lady.
