Submitted by: covertbase
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This sighting was high elevation on pearly everlasting flowers in a engleman spruce forest. The only one I like this all day. didn't have normal butterfly behavior - we got really close without it flying away and it just stayed on this flower without moving its wings. Sunny day, ~75 Degrees.
