Well, with this angle, I'm inclined to agree with TWT - this this looks like more like a Chalcedon Checkerspot to me as well. Hard to say in that first shot though as it really looks like there's more orange on the wings, but the male and female Chalcedon have some variation in the spots, and the head and antennae in that second shot does not match the Bay. Nice shots either way.
