Brant Reif

Deerfield Trail near Silver City, Black Hills National Forest
Pennington County, SD

One tiger swallowtail flew past, but as both the Canadian and Western fly in the area I couldn’t identify it correctly.

Atlantis Fritillary was the unsilvered “Hesperis” form as I’ve also found the silvered “Atlantis” form flying in the same area in the past.
