Coordinator notes: A very nice sighting....this is not a butterfly that cooperates with the camera as this on very many occasions. Really a great photo and nice record. Unless your stated location information is incorrect, the correct locality county is in Alamosa County, not Saguache County. I don't think this is a new county record but if it happens to be, I'll edit this sighting and add that notation. Sorry I took so long to verify your submission. Mike
Checklist region(s): United States, Colorado, Saguache County
