1st Pyrgus of season in the garden
There was a raft of them just beyond the surfers
A likely stowaway from a hike in the piney sandhills...
The little flowers. Not the new poison oak.
Very close to shore and away from help areas. Maybe 75 feet from beach. Seemed to be foraging in a very small patch of kelp that looked to be loose or disconnected from sea floor.
About 20-25 cm long
