butterfly

Sighting Record 1179575

Observation Notes: 
The wing- shape is very irregular and the brown closed color & bright orange open are like a like a tortoiseshell, but the closed wing pattern is not. The closest thing I could find was the silver spotted skipper, but it is not right - The Orange bars on this one differentiate it - plus the wing shape. Obviously, I'm stuck. Thanks for your time and help identifying this. BTW, Sorry for the awful photo, They were puddle feeding, so I blew up multiple shots as best as my hiking point-and-shoot could do. Thanks again.

Start watching for the butterflies when you reach the bluff above I-205. Other butterflies present at different times of year. So far no luck photographing. Lots of poison oak. Wild flowers are spectacular in April/May. See Nature Conservancy website: Camassia

Observation Notes: 
I was remarking to a fellow observer on how much whiter one of the blue butterflies was than others of the 50+ at the dry mud spot congregation. They all were very docile, we could sit down next to them. they hardly noticed us. When she put out her finger, the whiter one climbed on it, and I took this photo.
