Sighting for May 19, 2022

Lucy Merrill-Hills

Alder Park, New Castle, CO
Garfield County, CO

I walked in the park from 11:00-12:30; it was partly sunny and windy with temps in the hight 60’s.
Over the last month, I’ve seen two species of blue butterflies, but I have not been able to get a photo yet for a positive ID. Today’s blue butterfly was about the size of a Juba Skipper.
When I got home, one street away from Alder Park, two Two-tailed Swallowtails were flying together in my yard.

  • Two-tailed Swallowtail 2
  • Cabbage White 20
  • Clouded Sulphur 3
  • West Coast Lady 1
  • White Checkered-Skipper 1
  • Juba Skipper 1
