Sighting for June 25, 2014

Steven Rosenthal

Allwine Prairie (Glacier Creek Preserve), NW Omaha
Douglas County, NE

after whiffing on regal fritillaries on Sunday 6/22 at Crane Meadows and other known localities in Wood River, I was alerted to this great spot right under my proboscis from where I was staying for business…thanks to Ted Burk, Alicia Mullarkey, Chris Helzer, and Ray Moranz for helping me come up with a “save” on the last day of my trip. Highlights from a 2 hour walk in hot sun…regals were just starting to emerge…all males, chasing each other and monarchs too.

  • Gray Copper 1
  • Regal Fritillary 7+
  • Monarch 8
