Sighting for June 1, 2013

Barb Sendelbach

Bloomingdale Bog
Essex County, NY

Walked the southern end, northern end and a bit in the middle. A great place odonata, botany, and birds too. Also observed were several species of diurnal moths, possibly a Mustard White, Silvery Blue, Bog Copper (we were unable to photograph the 3) and a few Duskywing species that I need help with identifying.
Thank you so much to Sheila and Lew Rosenberg who submitted their sighting last spring and for making us aware of such a beautiful place.
