Sighting for June 22, 2013

Rich Kelly, Seth Ausubel, Mary Normandia, Patricia Aitken

Caumsett State Park
Suffolk County, NY

Just a quick visit to see the Baltimores. So numerous they were hard to count. Just a rough estimate, and probably quite conservative. Also saw 2 pupae and one larva.
See American Butterflies Vol.17 No. 4 for my article on the colonization at this site.
