Female Hesperopsis libya, the Mojave Sootywing, at Scissors Crossing. September 28, 2013.
Another female Mojave Sootywing from Scissors Crossing in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. September 28, 2013.
A male Mojave Sootywing, same place and time as above.
Another male, same day. They were more common than I'd ever seen them on this day at Scissors Crossing.
A ventral view of Hesperopsis libya libya, same day as above. I was after Palmer's Metalmarks but was happy to see these flying in good numbers; I didn't have any photographs of males and no really good photos of females, something I was able to remedy. Sometimes the timing is just right - it was a memorable day.
