Sighting for June 28, 2020

Karlo and Alison Mirth

Ward Pound Ridge Reservation
Westchester County, NY

10 AM - 5:30 PM, humid, mid-80s, mostly sunny until 3 PM when dark clouds and thunder moved in, but no rain in the park. There were many “witches”, the majority of them Little Glassywings, but many others eluded identification. Saw more G.S. Fritillaries today than in all of last year, which was truly a down year.
