Butterfly Garden Notes, 6/17/2016

Saw a new butterfly in my garden today. I think it may be a Gray Hairstreak, common in California. It's also the size of my thumbnail. I saw it when I was outside watering and after a bunch of shitty cell phone pictures, I ran inside to grab the camera hoping it would still be there. Thankfully, it hung around for a few more seconds and I got a couple of images good enough to make an identification. I never realized there were so many different kinds of tiny butterflies until I created this garden and they started showing up.
