Sighting for July 9, 2022

Brian McGurgan

Chugach State Park, Flattop Mountain (61.10299° N, 149.68182° W)
Anchorage Municipality, AK

Wind, mostly overcast skies, and temperatures in the low-sixties from 3:30 to 6pm. Very little butterfly activity with the gray, windy weather. It had looked like the sun might break through the clouds but the conditions never really improved. The few Mormon Fritillaries I found were very skittish and didn’t cooperate for photos.

  • Mormon Fritillary 3
