This female was taken at high elevation, about 8000ft, in a patch of grassland near the top of a very impressive cliff. These high elevation specimens tend to run small. Every one looks different, there is an endless supply of variations of the pattern.

I took these in look light, and my little digital camera doesn't perform very well without some nice bright sun or a flash, but these are at least tolerable.
