Sighting for June 5, 2022

Brian McGurgan

Chugach State Park, Windy Point (60.98499° N, 149.60629° W)
Anchorage Municipality, AK

Sunny and 68° with strong wind from 10:20 to 10:50am. I would have stayed longer but the wind was discouraging butterfly activity, and those I saw were mostly hunkered down in the ground cover. Two female Greenish Blues were observed including one ovipositing, plus a worn-looking male missing patches of scales on the underside of his wings.

  • Greenish Blue 3
  • Mormon Fritillary 4
