Submitted by: milleroy
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This cat was not feeding, it was traveling right along, it was on Goldenrod when I first saw it but moved on to other grasses and weeds. It was about 3 feet from where a Baltimore Checkerspot Butterfly had emerged from a chrysalis a few hours before. This cat was where I previously reported the Baltimore Checkerspot Butterfly.
