Observation notes: Observed with Kristy Baker. Temperature was 64 when photographed. Saw 11 individuals on Feb. 20. Temperature range was 64 - 74. Partly sunny to mostly overcast. The butterfly lit because it was still relatively cool out. As it warmed, I never saw any other individuals sit. All were males.
