During a one week trip to the Park City area, I was able to get out for a few days of butterflying in June, 2005. Many thanks to Todd Stout for pointing me in the right direction for some good leps, and to both Todd and Alan Myrup for interesting identification discussions! On the pages that follow are some of the photos (representing 32 butterfly species) I got during the trip. All were taken with a Nikon CoolPix 4500. Enjoy!

I took this very blurry photo while driving up the canyon road. I never once saw one of these bugs perched!Sara Orangetip (Anthocharis sara), aka
