Yes indeed
They are Hoffmann's. However, the shot showing the underside is a California Crescent, and I took the liberty of separating it.

Moved from Butterflies.

 
Thanks . . . again!
Thanks David for the ID confirmation, and for separating out the California Crescent from the rest of the group!

Best wishes,
Scott

a checkerspot of some type?

I don't know either,
but what a beautiful puddle! =)

Don't know, but....
Your photo is a work of art. Nice job.

 
Thanks!
The "puddle" of butterflies were congregating near a small mountain stream, there were also a lot of "blues" similarly hanging out. But this gathering obviously caught my eye. Best wishes, Scott
