Jeanette Klodzen

Antelope Island (The Ranch)
Davis County, UT

Went after work today to survey the damage from a large week-end wildfire that burned over 1/2 the island - 15,100 acres of 28,000 acres.

From what I can tell for the trails I walk, the White Rock Trail is intact. But the Sentry Peak trail is totally burned.

The Ranch is OK too! The butterflies were at the Ranch.

West Irondequoit, my garden, abutting Seneca Park, above the Genesee River Gorge
Monroe County, NY

I was weeding a row of Butterfly Bushes that had only one in bloom and saw it fly along the row and alight on a grapevine leaf in the sun. When I went to inspect it, it flew to a low branch on a pine tree in the shade and spread its wings fully and stayed that way for over 40 minutes. It was observable at eye level upper side and under side. It was HUGE; I estimate wingspan closer to 8” than 6”! Garden had in bloom many Hostas, Crocosomia “Lucifer”, re-blooming day-lilies, lilies, some scarlet lobelia, butterfly plants, butterfly bush, Corydalis “lutea”, swamp milkweed (I think), Black-eyed Susan, wild geranium, hydrangeas; lace-cap and mop-head. I did not see the Giant Swallowtail feed on anything in the garden nor do I know how long he stayed at the pine tree; over 40 minutes though. There are 6 pinch-waist hummingbird feeders in the garden. I have never seen anything quite like it; an awesome experience !

South end off the county today.This area is in USDA growth zone 9a. The previous posts from, the north part of the county is in USDA zone 8a, and the center of the county is in USDA zone 8b. These areas provides the proper climate for wide range of host plants making this home for butterflies that we might see from central Florida to central Alabama.The zones 9b and 8b are on the cusp of each of these zones.and Baldwin Co.does not get the full time range of all the speices found deeper in both zones.The cooler months has more of the zone 8b sighting(mostly late winter and early spring);and the warmer months(mid summer through the fall)produces most of the sightins from zone 9a residents.The weather remains warm enough for Monarchs to over winter here in the southern coastal area of zone 9a,as they do in Florida. Today’s sighting of a female Orange Barred Sulphur,and Baracoa Skipper are examples of those that might be more of a Floridian sightings.

Overall b’fly numbers are modest or low.
