Saturday I chased butterflies in southwest Iowa. As I posted previously, I have chased the juniper hairstreak unsuccessfully for many years, managing to see it a only a few times–counting Saturday I have seen it on four occasions, and got photos on three of those occasions. I have searched specifically for it dozens of times.
I posted the best picture I got of it Saturday earlier. I only managed four photos, and two were badly out of focus. This was the second-best shot.
I will keep trying.
