Pearl Crescent on Shrubby Cinquefoil

Pearl Crescent on Shrubby Cinquefoil
A small butterfly that I think I have identified correctly, seen on 15 July 2013, when six of us spent a few hours botanizing the land belonging to Sarah Leete, NW of Cochrane. We list all flora and fauna that we find, when we botanize any area, and then provide the landowner with a very comprehensive list of our finds, along with any photos that may have been taken. We are happy to do this for any landowner who would like to know what's growing or living on their land.

It is a very pretty combination of the colours of the butterfly on the yellow of the Cinquefoil. I think it would be fun to do botanizing, though I would terrible at the ID part of it! (I can take pictures though) :)

Lovely details and colours on this one Anne ... with these markings, it looks like a Northern Crescent Butterfly ... which is very common in your area ...
