We had a Variegated Fritillary at DeKorte today — in the yellow flowers in the far parking lot. This is a new record for us as well.

Pipevine Swallowtail at DeKorte!
Just photographed this Pipevine Swallowtail by the Butterfly Bushes on the side of the MEC at DeKorte.
It is a new species for us. For the North American Butterfly Association checklist for DeKorte Park, click here.
Fighting Mile-a-Minute in Ridgefield
Just a quick tip of the hat to all the volunteers in Ridgefield who have been tackling the Mile-a-Minute Weed at Skeetkill Creek Marsh.
Karen Riede reports:
"We had a session with 6 volunteers and the pile is pictured between us. The mile-a-minute is so abundant. The berries are starting to show."
Pictured L to R: Julianne D'Amico, Katie Pfaff, Patty Pfaff, Madeline Pfaff, Joe D'Amico, Kathy Payerle (not pictured Karen Riede, beacuse she took the photo.)
Mile-a-Minute is a nasty invasive. Thanks, all!
New Video on DeKorte Park
DeKorte Park from Mallav Naik on Vimeo.
Mallav Naik, a big fan of DeKorte Park and an occasional contributor to this blog, has created a Vimeo video of images from the park, accompanied by a very soothing soundtrack. Definitely worth a look and listen. (Be patient; it may take a little time to load.)
