New butterfly for the yard, 1/11/14

Well, with the extremely cold winter there hasn't been much to blog about.  Ten days ago we got the first American Lady in our yard, species #78.

On the same day I found this weird looking Gray Hairstreak.  The orange spot looks all wrong so I'm trying to turn it into a Red-lined Scrub-Hairstreak.  I'll let you know what the experts say.

Anyway it's been cold and I've only seen a dozen species in our yard during the past week.
