Polygonia satyrus satyrus
posted 06/13/14 - We found this in a small canyon behind the table rock horse stables on the north side of Carmel Valley Road. The location is in the general vicinity as Hatton Canyon (satyr and oreas) and Santa Lucia Preserve (oreas and zephyr). Note overall light appearance and 4 pairs of spots closest to the body on both the fore and hindwings on this individual. Too bad I didn't also get a picture of its comma mark, but that's the way it usually happens for me. I don't have a whole lot of patience waiting to take perfect pictures.
