Hi Moose,

Thanks for the kind words.  It took me quite a while to ID the little guy.  If I recall what I saw on its habitat, I think it was the SE United States.

It never hurts to look, though.

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 Hairstreak.


Way Kewl, Dood!

I wonder if we have similar things here. I tend to think the tiny guys are Skippers, often without checking. I wonder if I'm missing something.
