Location: Muscallounge Road near Beetown
Temperatures in 80's with mostly sunny skies. All butterflies observed in and around a Common Milkweed patch in a field. Excited to observe my first Red Admiral of the year. Last year the Red Admirals were all over the area in early spring so I was glad to finally see one today. First Eastern Comma and Meadow Fritillary of the year, too. Also very excited to observe two Monarchs. The number of Monarch's observed this year in comparison to last year also seems to be down.
Eastern Tiger Swallowtail
