Yes, great photo -
Because I just photographed a Juba in the San Gabriels, I was curious to see what's already on bugguide.
Your butterfly is on Grindelia squarrosa (Curly gumweed).

I had no idea what that bush was and they're everywhere in Utah. The bugs (and insects) love them! Thanks for the information.

I like to take note of the plants used by the insects I photograph. I often see them again by revisiting the kinds of plants where I saw them previously.
Grindelia species (Sunflower family/ Asteraceae ) produce gummy plant resins - see here: 1 .

Great shot
