Chugach State Park, Eklutna Lake (61.40761° N, 149.13792° W)
Anchorage Municipality, AK

Sunny and 68° at 10:45am as I started and 74° at 1:45pm when I stopped. A beautiful but very warm day to be out, and I enjoyed lots of butterfly activity. My goal was to find and photograph Field Crescents and they were quite visible and sometimes cooperative. I was also hoping for early Sulphurs so was glad to find some Clouded Sulphurs, although they were too active and wary for decent photos.

  • Western Tailed-Blue 4
