Sighting for August 5, 2020

Venice Kelly

a meadow 2 miles west of pine cliffe
Gilpin County, CO

it turns out the Regal Fritillary is a county record. the elevation of the little meadow is 8,300’and not a usual place to find a Regal Fritillary. needless to say, it was a surprise for me. there wasn’t much flying today due to the clouds and then storm.
