Sighting for April 30, 2020

Fontenelle Forest
Sarpy County, NE

The butterflies seen today are from my weekly survey of Fontenelle Forest. Today was 70 degrees, sunny and little wind. I was out for 3 hours. I was very surprised to see the Goatweed Leafwing and the Zebra Swallowtail. The Zebra Swallowtail doesn’t usually get this far north but with climate change who knows.
