Submitted by: gregslak
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Hiking through the Old Youth Camp on the south side of the ridge above the Stough Canyon Nature Center, I came across what appeared to be a mating pair of Northern White-Skippers, in pursuit along the dry brush and dirt on the trail. In my photos, the heavily marked female is above the pale male.
