[DesertLeps] unsilvered Speyeria hesperis
I see 3 subspecies of hesperis in Canada. Some might see 4 and some might see one and some might not even see hesperis at all.
The unsilvered specimens are both singletons from their respective populations. So I cannot say how representative of said populations
they are. There are hesperis specimen images on my flickr site so you can see what they look like in this part of the continent.
I think that captures most of the hesperis images. They show geographic and individual variation, just as the USA hesperis do.
Why so many images ? Why not ?. It is a common and widespread species in my part of the world. And for those who prefer or
like live shots, there are those on my flickr site also.
