Red-banded Hairstreak @ DeKorte

Red-banded Hairstreak
Steve Buckingham photographed this Red-banded Hairstreak at Jill’s Garden on Kevin Karlson Shorebird Day. Steve writes:

“Attached is a shot of the Red-banded Hairstreak from Saturday.  It really shows up nicely against the Black-eyed Susans.”

(Thanks, Steve!)

The butterfly is on the North Jersey Butterfly Club’s checklist for DeKorte Park, but this is the first one we’ve seen. Very cool.
