Today was an exciting day on the Grizzly Flat trail. I photographed my first Metalmark; Mormon Metalmark, Apodemia mormo!
Here’s the list of what I saw today along with some photos.
Checkered White, Pontia protodice, Male
Pale Swallowtail, Papilio eurymedon
Gray Hairstreak, Strymon melinus pudica, female
Duskywing - I think this is Funereal. I always have a hard time distinguishing the Funeral from the Mournful.
Hairstreak - Only one shot and too far away. I think maybe a Hedgerow.
Bernardino Blue, Euphilotes bernardino - Saw lots of these.
