Great Spangled Fritillaries
There was a small patch of milkweed next to the pond, and it was covered with GSFs. These are only two out of five that were there. It does seem to be a very good year for GSFs.
Buck's Plume Moth
The view is not too exciting, but the butterflies were wonderful!
Acadian Hairstreak (life butterfly!)
Wood Lily (native)
Striped Hairstreak (worn)
Gray Hairstreak on Long-Leaved Bluet
The hairstreak flew to a low-flowering plant and nectared there for a while. I don't think I ever would have noticed it otherwise! It is a native wildflower, extremely rare and considered endangered. I was lucky to have seen it!
two Wood Lilies (native)
with two Coral Hairstreaks on them!!!
(I didn't see those until I look on the computer.)
Puffball mushroom (a pretty one!)
