I'd only seen this species in ones and twos, and always on trips to the north, so I was pleased to find a good population relatively close to home at Kinnickinnic State Park. They aren't brightly colored, but their brown is very rich and their white stripes are snazzy. I especially like how the white stripe on the thorax is outlined in black to make it stand out more.
