Sighting for June 7, 2021

Brian McGurgan

Far North Bicentennial Park
Anchorage Municipality, AK

Warm sunny day with temperatures in the mid sixties and a light breeze. Sightings were from along a bike trail in the northwest corner of the park, with small numbers of butterflies found in some patches of wildflowers. An orange-brown butterfly fluttered past a few times while I was at one spot photographing the silvery blues but didn’t rest so I didn’t get close views - maybe a fritillary of some kind.
