Butterfly sighting

Sep 4 2014

Darleen Horman

Location: My yard in Allenton
Washington County

Sunny, very warm and humid. The butterflies looked very fresh except for some of the Pearl Crescents, which were very faded. Plenty of dragonflies, bees and soldier beetles! Also found 2 early instar Eastern Tiger Swallowtail caterpillars. One on a White Ash sapling, the other on Wild Black Cherry.
