Sighting for September 6, 2013

Steven Rosenthal

Lido Passive Nature Preserve, Point Lookout/Lido Beach
Nassau County, NY

two cloudless sulphurs were right at the parking area when i arrived going from plant to plant, they then flew off and tangled in the air for several minutes, and returned. the one closest was observed laying eggs on the pea plants that are in with the grass plantings.

also saw two monarchs, which seems to be the average for the last few visits, way down from last yr, and their buttefly bushes are fading fast.
