Fort Tryon Park, northern Manhattan (garden areas)
New York County, NY

Sunny, late-day visit to Heather gardens areas. Both hairstreak species seen appeared to be in very good condition; a Painted Lady is in the featured photo. I was hoping to re-find an Ocola Skipper that had been photographed by a friend, in this site, just 2 days earlier - but that was not seen again.
