Sighting for August 25, 2022

Lucy Merrill-Hills

My yard, New Castle
Garfield County, CO

I went for a very short walk around my yard, then sat on my stone wall to photograph the hummingbirds. Almost as soon as I sat down, an Atlantis Fritillary flew into my Zinnias, the first fritillary I’ve seen in the yard.

Late morning, partly sunny, high 80’s.
