Sighting Record 1249404

Observation Notes: 
Weather: N/A. Notes: All of a sudden on the windy evening of May 19th, about 6 or 7 Checkered Whites, all female, appeared in my backyard, nectaring on Alliums. I have no idea why they randomly showed up in the evening (I didn't see any earlier in the day) or why they were all female, but it was a pleasant surprise all the same.
