Thicket Hairstreak butterfly

Not only is the birding wonderful in northeast Oregon, but at this time of year the "butterflying" is pretty good, too. I saw many species along the McCully Creek trail, but only got pictures of four. The Thicket Hairstreak was new for me, and was especially interesting because he chose to rest beside the only object on the trail that was the same color as himself -- these dried-up pine needles.
