Pole Road, Fir Brook Area
Sullivan County, NY
Swallowtails were a mix of Eastern Tigers and Canadian Tigers. Many more were seen but not identified. There were several puddle parties going on along the road. I’m sure there were probably a few hybrids mixed in there too. All butterflies were nectaring on what I believe to be Robin’s Plantain (Hairy Fleabane) Erigeron pulchellus.
