Nymphalis milberti subpallida - Milbert's Tortoiseshell
I didn't get close, so this will have to do for now: Nymphalis milberti subpallida at Alder Creek, 6800' along Sherman Pass Road in Tulare County. May 16, 2014. I'll get better shots someday, and until then will curse the male checkerspots that chased milberti out of the creek whenever it settled down. I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE!
