Poor image of a nice moth... as it flew by, thought it was a duskywing skipper and I almost missed it...
Saw hundreds of these today over the whole circuit of the Garrapata loop.
Still numerous in the dry meadow.
On a blackberry leaf.
One of the several I'd had trouble identifying today by field markings; but this one showed a telling fondness for a small mountain mahogany...
Single individual in a wild crowd at the only muddy spot on the trail.
Sitting right next to what I take to be a Sylvan hairstreak.
Worn individual, but I think right ID.
