CentraI Park, Manhattan
New York County, NY

Sun, warm, good day for species-diversity; Cloudless Sulphur is fairly rare in Manhattan, even if not so on nearby outer coast; Common Buckeye is uncommon in Central Park; Fiery Skipper was first-of-year to T.F. Snouts were near Celtis, a not-rare tree in this city. Photo is Cloudless by T.F., & of Buckeye by Mike Freeman who had allowed the worn butterfly sit on a finger-tip. Zabulon & Tawny-edged Skippers were both a bit worn, many Sachems were fresh.

My boys and I went on two separate walks through the park hitting the prairie before lunch and the woodland/wetland trail after lunch. The temperature approached 90 after lunch, but the lack of a stiff breeze allowed us to spot many more butterflies here than I remember in the past. This has become an annual trip for me and my boys on the last day of our summer break.
