I believe this is a Banded Hairstreak (Satyrium calanus) which uses oak as the larval host plant and consumes milkweek nectar as an adult. This adult is on scrub oak at Roxborough State Park. Posted by Picasa

OOPS! I did not know it would leave
me all that junk. Just wanted to
say your butterfly shots are great.
As I say we don't have many butterflies in the desert here.
I gotta go to Portland for that and
it costs money.

Gabe and Julio! Thanks so much! I was going to do a long reply here about butterfly photography, but decided to save it for a regular post.
