Observation date: July 13, 2020
Submitted by: TATTOOEDLADI
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Found this specimen perched on our fence. Did not seem to be intimidated by our presence, and at one point I put it in my hand to make sure it was ok, which it was. After inspecting it, I offered the fence again and it eagerly crawled on and continued to sun bathe. Weather was sunny and around 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
