more on 8/14/2006
Saturday afternoon, 8/19/2006, I was on the summit of the "South Sister," 10,400, maybe 80 miles south of Timothy Lake, OR. There we saw thousands of Nymphalis califonica flying up the cone and along the rim of the volcanic summit. Perhaps those seen by Jennifer and her son on 8/14/2006? ;o) Attached is a picture taken at the summit. It was awesome to witness!
Thank you for sending in your photos of this spectacular swarming of the California Tortoiseshell Butterflies.
