Observation notes: this time of year is still quite hot is the desert, forgot i never posted these, probably we were so excited to find calif giant skipper same trip. this was a very fresh example with good lighting. Rare when all the planets line up for you when taking a photo. on four wing salt bush thats where you will find them. Happy hunting! oh and if you can stand the heat, great time of year to see calif giant skipper, just ask Lynn or Gene Monroe! better take lots of water to pour over your head, to wet the ground to attract lots of butterflies and a bunch more to drink.
