Sighting for June 28, 2022

Brian McGurgan

Front yard, East Anchorage
Anchorage Municipality, AK

Sunny with temperature in the high sixties at about 3:55pm. I was working from home this afternoon and saw an orange butterfly flutter past the back deck. I hadn’t seen a fritillary in the yard or neighborhood before so ran outside with the camera. I found a Mormon Fritillary in the front yard and followed it a couple of houses down the block to get photos.
