Pearl Crescent: Two Views


We got our first Pearl Crescent of the season today, along with two Hummingbird Clear-winged Moths, skippers, and a Viceroy.

Here are two views of the tiny Pearl Crescent, about the size of a dime. This species can also be seen on the cover of Jeffrey Glassberg's excellent "Butterflies Through Binoculars, Boston-New York-Washington Region."

Let's hope all these guys hang around for Butterfly day this Sunday at DeKorte.
