you're flying in the right direction, Ron; I had nearly forgotten this.

Hey, you were the first!
This is my third year of photographing butterflies locally. First year - near record rainfall - I saw none of these. Second year - horrid drought - I saw none at this site and few generally. This year - average rain and loads o' mustard - there are lots aloft, and I'm having a field day as this is one of my favorite butterflies.
