Sighting for August 11, 2019

Lido Preserve, Lido Beach NY
Nassau County, NY

Highlights of a 1 hour visit around noon. Four Cloudless Sulphurs were seen simultaneously upon my arrival, at the small grassland. Eastern Comma was a first for me at this site; I don’t always check the many/frequent anglewings, but they were always Question Marks in the past. This one was small, and landed right in front of me for good looks. Also good numbers of Monarchs. Snout was on the trumpet vine.

  • Cloudless Sulphur 4
