Several years ago, I would spend my spring mornings, camera in hand, wandering in the Dry Canyon in Redmond, Oregon.
I was after bugs of any type.
One critter I kept trying to get a photo of was a Sara’s Orangetip. I’m still waiting for that opportunity…maybe spring 2011.
However, I did get images of a butterfly I really like. It’s the Zephyr Anglewing.
The Zephyr Anglewing is a gorgeous lepidoptera. It’s also very different from one to another. Although the basic pattern is on all of them, it is variable enough to allow someone who watches them, to tell individuals apart.
You can see the differences in the photos below.
