Sighting for September 15, 2017

David H. Bartholomew

Mount Hamilton
Santa Clara County, CA

With David Rawlinson, John Hibbard, and Nancy Asquith. We were looking for fritillaries, woodnymphs, and Columbia Skippers which this time of year visit the Rabbitbrush at the summit of Mt. Hamilton. It appears that we were a bit early, the rabbitbrush was not yet in full bloom. There were no fritillaries or woodnymphs, but there were Columbia Skippers to be found among the predominant Woodland Skippers.

  • Gray Hairstreak 1
  • Painted Lady 6
  • Columbian Skipper 2
  • Woodland Skipper common
