Speyeria egleis

Observation date: July 20, 2020
Submitted by: Gary Nordell
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Observed specimen puddling with 8-10 others of similar apearance. Temp: 72F, winds calm. I think it’s Speyeria but I’m guessing on the zerene — difficult for me to distinguish from elgeis.
