Below is yet a different subspecies of Edith's Checkerspot from high elevation in the California Sierra Nevada. Thanks to Jim Brock for indicating they might be E. editha, not E. anicia as I originally thought, and to Ken Davenport for identification of this subspecies, E. editha nubigena, the 'Cloud-Born' Checkerspot.
