This butterfly must have just hatched on 5/3 when I stumbled upon it and it's chrysalis. I didn't want to disturb it to try to coax its wings open.
Located at approximately 5.7km area of roadway. Flew up onto birch tree. Slow drive up hill to Frater, three butterfly species along route.
Mostly cloudy with brief periods of bright sunshine, 16C
