170/366 | Gray Hairstreak

This is a small butterfly in the Lycaenida family. He might look large here, but the size is approx 7/8 - 1 3/8 inches. They are easy to miss. Males perch on small trees and shrubs in hopes of attracting receptive females. This little one was on a small tree and just hanging out, so I suspect this is a male. Good luck, fella!
