9-26-2017 at Muir Woods National Park, Marin Co.,CA there were seen Califor=
nia Tortoiseshell butterflies in numbers, about 3 dozen in 1 hour ( 1-2pm).
They were flying in the front parking lot which adjoins the gift store. Mos=
t were seen in the Accessible area which directly adjoins the gift store.
A few seemed to be just hanging around, but the majority were clearly movin=
g in one general direction, from the gift store end towards the road.
Because they mostly did not settle, flying through, only one photo was obt=
ained, September Butterfly no 26.California Tortoiseshell.9-26-20=E2=80=A6 =
| Flickr <https://www.flickr.com/photos/34497109@N04/37293593946/in/datepos=
ted/> of an individual which is very tattered. Other individuals were see=
n in better condition.

The interior walkways within Muir Woods were mostly in shade and had no bu=
tterflies. A few Tortoiseshells (8) were to be seen flying in and out of su=
nny areas.

During the road trip from Hwy 101 to Muir Woods a significant number (about=
a dozen, more than usual) of orange butterflies were seen from the car, bu=
t not identified (might have been Ladies).

This observation is of interest because California Tortoiseshell has not be=
en seen much in the San Francisco Bay Area for several years.
