Wildflower-Butterfly Walk August 11, 2012

Wildflower-Butterfly Walk August 11, 2012

Only 5 hardy souls braved the August heat for this guided walk. Chapman's orchids were still blooming & the tiny cranefly orchid was blooming. Swallowtail butterflies were everywhere. Most numerous were Palamedes, eastern tiger and spicebush swallowtails. One giant swallowtail and one zebra swallowtail were spotted. Silver-spotted skippers and cloudless sulphurs were numerous. There were a few American ladies and buckeyes.
