Milbert's Tortiseshell Butterfly
Nymphalis milberti

This is the first and only time I have seen one of these butterflies. I think it probably flew in from elsewhere. I only had the chance to get this picture before it flew off.

Location: Airport Road, Sitka, Alaska

Next: Shore Blue-eyed Grass (Sisyrinchium litorale)
