Chlosyne acastus

Observation date: April 17, 2020
Submitted by: gadzooks58
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This butterfly was with several other species of butterflies in a mud patch which is a seep in a dirt road that we use to go birding. Other species present were California Tortoiseshell, Swallowtails (2 species, Anise and Oregon), Mourning Cloak and a blue butterfly I am still working on. The photo quality is not great as it would not sit still and I had a lens for bird photos (600 mm) which is not optimal for close shots like this.
