Only second time that I’ve had Pepper and Salt Skippers. Last time was 5/24/2009. Arctic Skippers seem to be doing well in this area. Both Canadian and Eastern Tiger-swallowtails are abundant along this road. I counted 17 puddling on one spot.

  • Eastern Tiger Swallowtail 40
  • Canadian Tiger Swallowtail 18

  • American Lady 3
  • Red Admiral 2
  • Arctic Skipper 7
