Submitted by: Sue Orlowski
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: smooth flying, landed on blade of grass and would walk up the blade with wings open,70's, sunny, went on 6/10 but they were patrolling a hillside about 20 ft slope and 100 ft wide so hardly stopped to take picture then it started to rain so I came back on the next day and all 3 were still there and they took more time to bask in the sun rather than patrol the hillside
