Here's another worn-torn individual shown nectaring on CA buckwheat. It's superficially similar to the grey hairstreak, down to similar bite marks out of the hind portion of their wings. Those tail-end bright spots sure seem to do their job in keeping these little snack-sized morsels alive long enough to get to the worn-torn looking stage. Cool beans. I wonder what the spots look like under UV for bird predators? Girl? I can't tell.
