Location: Rocky Run State Fisheries Area and Morse Rd.
With the all the speed demon Red Admirals whipping around, my first Giant Swallowtail of the year looked as graceful as an egret in flight. A bunch of Red Admirals were nectaring on what I believe is Russian Olive. The crescent in the photos likely got bonked by a car. Also saw 10+ Common Baskettails, lots of Green Darners and two Dot-tailed Whiteface dragonflies. And the Blanding's Turtle and Northern Water Snake were nice, too.
