Erora laeta

Submitted by: ncrosbyrd
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Very tiny hairstreak was observed for 2 minutes in a moist spot on Waterfall Trail at Laurel Run Park, Church Hill, TN It mostly stayed in the dorsal position but we did get a few ventral shots moving in closer until it flew. We could see the green with the orange spots and edging so we knew we were seeing our target butterfly!
