Sighting for June 21, 2013

Steven Rosenthal

Lido Preserve, Point Lookout NY
Nassau County, NY

pretty lousy for a first post-Sandy visit -could/should be about 10-15 species easy at this spot now….much vegetation dead or removed on this barrier island preserve. understory gone in many spots, still a lot of dead woody vegetation, trumpet vines pruned back, looks like all butterfly bushes were removed by the town. enough flowers blooming including orange milkweed to have been better. hopefully more stuff later this summer….

  • Cabbage White 6
  • 'Summer' Spring Azure 1
