AbstractThe Rocky Mountain Parnassian flies much faster than its relative species Usuba-Shiro, which is found in Japan. This video of a male of the species was shot by Mitch Denda in Eldora, Colorado on July 1, 2006. Denda completed back-to-back trips to Japan and Colorado in July 2006 to compare speed flights of Parnassians in both countries.
