Satyr Anglewing in Flatlands Berkeley

A Satyr Anglewing showed up in my backyard today. They are unusual around here, so I was surprised and excited. They lay their eggs on nettle. I don't have nettle. And no nectar in the backyard. So I don't know why it liked it there, but it kept coming back.I guess my neighbors must have some nettle.

having happened upon your blog I thought I'd remind you that satyr anglewings oviposit on
nettle family members only ( I don't know of use of genera other than Urtica and Hesperocnide)
