We had so many people at our Sunday nature walk that we split into two groups, plus stragglers, and learned a heap about native plants, butterflies and why they go hand in hand.
A pleasant surprise was the number of butterflies we saw — including Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, Black Swallowtail, Red Admiral, eastern-Tailed Blue, Broad-winged Skipper, Sliver-spotted Skipper, Orange Sulphur and Cabbage White.
We also had a neat surprise or two, including an amazing little spider and an unusual caterpillar that we'll talk about on another post.
Several pix follow.
white/green spider — can anyone help identify?
