Whether this is a male or female is irrelevant to me. If you sparkle, you're female in my book! lol
Males perch on small trees and plants all afternoon seeking receptive females. Eggs are laid singly on flowers of host plant. The wingspan is 7/8" - 1-3/8". First described by Jacob Hubner in 1818 as strymon melinus. The name is probably derived from the Greek word melinos, meaning ashen.
~~~~~~~On a completely unrelated subject, is anyone else flabbergasted that a person would shell out $142 MILLION DOLLARS for art? With so many in need around the world—especially in the Philippines where the typhoon hit—I mean, seriously? Am I missing something here? I felt guilty buying a sweater yesterday for heaven's sake. It's something I just can't stop thinking about and it's got me a little miffed at people who obviously have way too much money. Thoughts?
