Submitted by: glmcvickers555
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: It was a very hot afternoon and I was photographing a lot of swallowtails that were feeding from the phlox when this one came up and seemed to like the lantana better. He was very fast and did not stay long. I would love to know what kind it is.
