Here’s a pair of arctic blues, Agriades rustica, best friends, on a Potentilla flower.
Anarta nigrolunata, a little fuzzy moth, on little blue forget-me-not flowers, and on a rock.
And Lasionycta dolosa, the most common species in this genus of Hadenine owlet moths on the Pikes Peak tundra. This moth is shown only from Colorado on the Moth Photographers Group, but seems to range from RMNP to the San Juans, with Pikes Peak in the middle. That long left antenna is actually a grass awn. And how about that tiny black beetle?
Mead’s sulfur, Colias meadii, is one of the most common butterflies of the tundra. The upper side is all dark orange.
Boloria chariclea a lesser fritillary from the tundra, on old-man-of-the-mountain flowers, pretty much all day.
