I caught a butterfly

…with my camera.

Variable Checkerspot butterfly (Euphydryas chalcedona chalcedona)

I believe this furry creature is a variable checkerspot.


Oooh where was this? jealous!

This was taken somewhere along the Kent Pump fireroad just west of the Alpine Lake Dam in the Tamalpais Watershed.

I’m just glad this butterfly held still for me. Would have liked to get a monarch, but the one I saw was a little nervous.
