Sighting for May 22, 2015

Steven Glynn

PA State Game Lands area (Benner Spring) along Shiloh Road, near State College
Centre County, PA

Also had two dark skippers, possibly either Common Road-Side or Pepper and Salt, but couldn’t get either to stay in the area to be seen well.

Brief visit, on my way home, so only had a brief time to visit (about 45 minutes). Large fields along an access road, not far from the parking area, should be an excellent field soon for frits and other butterflies.
