Abundant in meadows.
Was feeding among a large stand of Red larkspur, so I got a few minutes to capture many blurred photos of this beauty. :)
Reddest ones of the many I saw blooming in the woods.
Small flock (I'd guess 6) high in trees.
With young on back.
Saw 7 of them along our 4 mile walk.
Helminthoglypta sonoma Pilsbry, 1937
Only saw this one caterpillar, but enjoyed watching a few adults flutter by.
Many woodland stars today.
About 1/2 of these have dropped their petals.
