Crescent Spot on Foxtail

This is the first butterfly I’ve shot of the season. This is a Crescent Spot and is perched upon a piece of foxtail barley. In order to get photos like this I am getting up a little before 4:00 am in order to get to the location and be ready to shoot just after the sun has risen.
