Sighting for July 9, 2022

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

Mostly cloudy and very windy, with temperatures in the mid-sixties from 1:30 to 2pm. The strong wind and shade from clouds reduced butterfly activity but I found Mormon Fritillaries taking shelter in wind-protected spots.

  • Mormon Fritillary 5
