4:50-5:30, sunny, 83°. Just as in our yard, small groups of Banded Hairstreaks are found "displaying" from about 4:00 until the sun disappears from their display platform, which is in the exact same location every year. Here at Lodestar, one group of 3 displays on a patch of Spreading Dogbane, the other on/near a Black Oak about 100 yards away.
