Gray hairstreak on flowering elbowbush
As you heard recently, one of the earliest native plants to bloom in central Texas each year is the elbowbush, Forestiera pubescens. A few days ago you saw a crab spider on one at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center on February 3, 2013, and now from that same outing here’s a different visitor to an elbowbush, a gray hairstreak butterfly, Strymon melinus.
