"like, Ocyptamus" - Ocyptamus lemur
Hereford, W of Hwy 92, Cochise County, Arizona, USA
October 7, 2010
Butterfly garden at 5,010' elev. Oak-grassland interface, SE Huachuca Mts. This individual was about 10' above ground flying around the flower spike of a Vitex bush. As it was windy, I netted it to photograph it indoors (specimen retained). Approx. 09:45 hrs. Photographed slightly chilled.
