Sighting for August 25, 2017

Karlo Mirth

Forest Park
Queens County, NY

This is the second Giant Swallowtail I’ve seen in this park, a fresh individual compared to the worn one I saw on 8/20. Judging from second-hand reports of Giant sightings in Manhattan parks, looks like a very nice incursion is taking place in the New York City area.

  • Giant Swallowtail 1
