Butterfly Report: 072809


 The improving butterfly season continues at DeKorte Park.
 Yesterday at DeKorte's butterfly plantings we saw Monarchs, Viceroys (above), Red Admirals, Eastern Swallowtails, Black Eastern Swallowtails, Summer Azures, Wild Indigo Duskywings, Silver-Spotted Skippers, assorted other skippers, and Cabbage Whites.

   Yesterday in The Record, Environmental Writer Jim O'Neill wrote about this being a tough year for butterflies in North Jersey. (Link is here.)
   At DeKorte at least, things have really been picking up in the last two weeks.
