Golden Hairstreak
Habrodais grunus

Observation date: July 09, 2018
Submitted by: Scott Burgess
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I observed this hairstreak for a while as it tongued the leaf. There was no obvious moisture, and I have seen them do this before. Are they eating pollen fallen on the leaves? One wonders.
