Field notes and information

ARIZONA April 2015: We found this at only 2 locations flying along dry canyons in the foothills of mountains. Usually it just kept flying along the canyon, but at one small area with some shade from larger trees 2 or 3 butterflies were circling, settling and feeding, where I took all these photos.
