Thanks a lot for those directions Martin! I went to the (right) place this afternoon and was duly impressed by the gathering of Imperial Hairstreaks. Quite a sight! The relationship between the ants and pupae is also very interesting.
Most of the butterflies, however, seemed intent on mating. At one point, one hairstreak emerged from its pupate stage and was immediately seized upon by a waiting male. The two were mating before the female's wings had even opened up!
Attached is one of the shots I managed to grab during the hour or so I had there.
