Location: Necedah National Wildlife Refuge
This was a morning visit. Conditions were perfect: sunny, 60+ degrees, and not too windy. There were many Eastern Buck Moths flying this morning. I was fortunate to have one land for a photo. One of my photos shows a VERY worn fritillary which lacks most of its wing scales and wing edge. Looks like a Meadow Frit to me. The brave thing was still flying. Oddest sighting was an American Copper courting, then mating with a female Purplish Copper! Photos attached!
