The Butterflies Are Arriving
CF Butterfly Walk Postponed to July 27

Tuesday's Butterfly Walk at DeKorte Park w/list

For a sneak preview of the 9th annual Butterfly Day at DeKorte Park (details on that on a post tomorrow), I went on Bergen County Audubon's butterfly walk today.

The weather was hot and sunny, but we had lots of butterflies and a Snowberry Clear- IMG_0815winged Moth -- and so many Coneflowers, Bee Balm and other native plants.

 Plus that always amazing view of the Manhattan skyline.

A list of the 14 species I saw follows.

Many Monarchs

Black Swallowtail

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

Question Mark

Umpteen Red Admirals

A couple of Ladies that never landed long enough to I.D.

Broad-winged Skippers

Silver-spotted Skipper

Common Buckeye (at the very end)

American Snout (briefly)

Wild Indigo Duskywing

Summer Azure

Orange Sulphurs

Cabbage Whites
