Another rare find for me – a hairstreak butterfly; I don’t remember seeing this small butterfly before. Its’ wingspan is more or less 25mm and the upper wing side is in color, but I’m not sure if it has spots on that side. I am awed by its’ striped antennae that has color orange on it’s tip. At first I thought that it’s a Striped Hairstreak, but it’s stripes and body is different from those identified as such so I have no idea what it is called specifically.
