These two seemed trying to reach an understanding; then lit side-by-side on adjacent blossoms-- I presume for a snack.

Dozens of these congregating on a small flower patch; along with buckeyes, west coast ladies, mylitta crescents, purplish coppers, grey hairstreaks and common checkered skippers.

Groups of 5-10 would form little mobs fluttering frantically in a tight radius for a good part of a minute before disbursing.
