Observation date: July 06, 2021
Submitted by: kdwellnitz
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This is a second picture of a butterfly that I observed on a hot sunny day on a Quick Fire Hydrangea, I have still not been able to figure out what it is. When looking through my files this is the only other picture of this butterfly that was clear enough to be able to see any detail, I was never able to see it with it's wings spread and was unable to follow it when it flew away.
