Artist's Description

Taken in my backyard, Marana, Arizona using a Canon Powershot SX10IS

Although never abundant, this species is the most common and widespread of the hairstreaks. Its larvae feed on a broad array of plants, which is quite uncommon for caterpillars.

Gray hairstreaks bask in the early morning light and open their wings to gain warmth. While basking they expose their mouse-gray upper surface, which is broken by a pro-nounced black-centered red area at the base of their tails. Such patterns clearly identifies the species. the males can be distinguished from females by their orange abdomen.
