Butterflies Galore!

IMG_2671
After hearing reports of a Red Admiral invasion to our south and actually seeing some sunshine, I checked out Kingsland Overlook in DeKorte Park for butterflies this afternoon.

All I can say is: Wow. The reports were not exaggerated. I saw 50+ Red Admirals (above), at least five American Ladies, three Question Marks and — get this — a Hummingbird Clear-winged Moth (below).

Pix of Question Mark and American Ladies follow. (Tough angles.)

    Jim, the Red Admirals are EVERYWHERE down at DeKorte and the surrounding area. I saw at least a dozen on just a short walk.
