Elada Checkerspot
Texola elada
The Elada Checkerspot (Texola elada) occurs in parts of south and west Texas as well as southern New Mexico and Arizona. The one in the top 3 images shown here was in Sycamore Canyon, Santa Cruz Co., Arizona, in May, 2008. These shots were taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and EF 300mm F/4 L IS lens and 2X extender. The Arizona individuals look somewhat different from those in Texas. Scroll down for some Texas shots.
The next 11 shots of Elada Checkerspot were taken in Starr Co., Texas, in May, 2010, with a Canon EOS 1D Mark IV and an EF 300mm F/4 L IS lens and 2X extender and 580 flash.
