Sighting for April 21, 2013

Allan R. Loudell

Nottingham County Park (Serpentine Barrens)
Chester County, PA

4–5 p.m., Temperatures in 52—54 degree range.
Hoped to see Falcate Orangetips, but found none.
But did see a rather small Zebra Swallowtail, which is uncommon at Nottingham any time of the year, despite being just north of Cecil County, MD.
Except for Cabbage Whites, all butterflies were my first such sightings of 2013.
Exceptionally fresh Zebra Swallowtail & Juvenal’s Duskywing.

  • Zebra Swallowtail 1
