Long Ridge Open Space Preserve
San Mateo County, CA

Quite warm, near 90 degrees. Thankful to see a bright orange Unsilvered Fritillary flying among the many scruffy Coronis.

A surprise, two battling Ringlets really went at it, tussling their way high up into the sky, perhaps 80 feet up or higher when I lost sight of them.
