There were butterflies everywhere on my hike to the Palmer Lake Reservoirs. I was able to photograph five kinds that I’d never seen before.
#49 — Variable Checkerspot (euphydryas chalcedona)
#50 — Mormon Fritillary (speyeria mormonia)
#51 — Taxiles Skipper (poanes taxiles)
#52 — Coronis Fritillary (speyeria coronis)
#53 — Pale Swallowtail (papilio eurymedon)
