Culvert Hopping - 2

This is a gully where water runoff passes through a tunnel (culvert) under a mountain highway. There wasn't any visible water in this gully on this Spring day but the butterflies gathered here anyway for some reason. I think there must have been some moisture just under the surface they were attracted to, not to mention the lush plant life, or perhaps they liked the shelter. Whatever it was, I had some very good Lep collecting here. Always check your culverts.
