John Christensen

Morning at Lillie Park South and late afternoon at Leonard Preserve.
Washtenaw County, MI

Returned to a spot at Leonard Preserve where I had a tentative Oak Hairstreak (Satyrium favonius) sighting a week ago. Found it again and got a better look, but only managed a blurry photo as it darted away. Near same location where Jackie Riley saw one a few years ago. One Banded Hairstreak with partial orange cap on blue spot.
