Location: Riveredge Nature Center
10:15 am to 12:15 pm. Last week on the butterfly count I missed the Metalmarks because they were not in my counting territory, so I returned today to see them. Three came close enough to the path to get good looks and an OK photo. There were many Eastern Tailed-blues today. I hadn't realized how black the females look when they are in flight, although they look more dark gray when they settle with their wings spread. Most of the skippers today got away without me being able to either ID or photograph them.
