Gray Hairstreak

Strymon melinus


This one was on the last blooms of the Shasta Daisy, Leucanthum. It had best beware of the small crab spider waiting under the petals.


The garden is about half an acre of native plants specifically planted for wildlife. The main water source is a pond that is filtered by two gravel streams. It is on a peninsula by Lake Lewisville, TX.

Beautiful. We have an overabundance of these, and are the most common ones for me to spot and photograph. I had no idea there was a purple hairstreak and can't thank you enough for your knowledge and ID help.
