Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Was in a patch of Indian Blanket flowers(Gaillardia pulchella), along with numerous Variegated Fritillaries. I was only able to get 3 fairly quick photos before I lost track of it. I “think “ I also saw one yesterday morning? No camera and only a brief look. Some pairing going on but mainly seeking sips. Very hot and dry.
