Butterfly sighting

Jun 7 2014

Mike Reese

Location: Quincy Bluffs & Wetland SNA
Adams County

Saw both boghaunters today, the latest in the year I have ever seen either species. I watched the ants lug the pupa across the trail for about 5 minutes. They made surprising progress, traveling over a meter.
I also saw a Canadian/Eastern Tiger Swallowtail.
