Duskywing Butterfly April 19, 2007

Lyle WA: Chris and I made a quick trip to Catherine Creek. We intended to look for bryophytes and wildflowers. Catherine Creek is well into the spring season. Dodecatheon is nearly gone but Camassia is still strong.

Lewisia blooms are just becoming photogenic. The breeze was strong but in a few sheltered areas photography was manageable. We found Penstemon barrettiae just beginning to bloom but not yet prime.

I caught a butterfly on camera, probably a Propertius Duskywing.
