Large bush among chapparal.
Several pairs mating today; no singles. Might be nearing the end of the flight?
This one had NO white spots on the wings - inland or coastal or ?
Faded and tattered.
About 1" long. Had orangeish-yellow wings (only saw in-flight blur).
Adult male, on oak trunk.
Group of about 10 of them interacting in one small riparian area.
The second photo shows an acorn and leaves to make sure I've got the right oak.
Near Pipestem Clematis - same thing, just going to seed pods?
Note wide hind wings and small round dark basal spot. Hilltopping; not at pond.
About 3/4" long.
On pipestem clematis.
