5/15 - I made a quick run over to Oracle, AZ.
I had 40+ Soapberry Hairstreaks (Phaeostrymon alcestis) at a soapberry stand. There were so many that it was actually difficult to get photos since the males wouldn't stay on their perches for long with so many others flying around. Many were somewhat far away from the actual soapberry trees. I also had one Ilavia Hairstreak (Satyrium ilavia) nearby along with Leda Ministreak and Lupine Blue.
