Early Hairstreak - Strymon melinus - Female
Desoto, Dallas County, Texas, USA
March 6, 2013
My earliest picture for a Gray Hairstreak in North-central Texas is March 31st. This one was so early I thought I'd better get confirmation that it's not something else. Not much to nectar on right now! It was on the small end of the size range.
