Submitted by: Scott Burgess
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: While photographing puddling butterflies, I spotted this one hiding behind some grass behind the road and managed a couple picture. When it took off, it flew straight away like an arrow and didn't return to the area, much like one I saw near Salmon Mountain. Photos are of a single specimen.
