Anchorage Municipality, AK

Sunny and 70° with a breeze at 5:45pm. While starting some yard work I spotted a Green Comma fluttering along the sunlit ground below a lilac bush that’s just starting to bloom. By the time I grabbed the camera the Comma was gone, but a Mustard White and Canadian Tiger Swallowtail - both missing large parts of their wings - were visiting the lilac. The Comma flew by the front yard several times but didn’t settle.
