Along Dutch Neck Road & path extending along C & D Canal near red barn south of Delaware City
New Castle County, DE
Saw two Bronze Coppers flying wildly in circles in a dizzying display; couldn’t see for sure, but assuming male/female in courtship dance? They never settled within viewing distance.
Butterfly numbers overall seemed a little low, although my first Spicebush Swallowtail (female, immaculately fresh!), Silver-spotted Skipper, and Peck’s Skipper of the season.
4 p.m., temperatures around 80.
