Sighting for August 28, 2016

Tom Fiore, Mike Freeman

CentraI Park, Manhattan
New York County, NY

Sun, warm, good day for species-diversity; Cloudless Sulphur is fairly rare in Manhattan, even if not so on nearby outer coast; Common Buckeye is uncommon in Central Park; Fiery Skipper was first-of-year to T.F. Snouts were near Celtis, a not-rare tree in this city. Photo is Cloudless by T.F., & of Buckeye by Mike Freeman who had allowed the worn butterfly sit on a finger-tip. Zabulon & Tawny-edged Skippers were both a bit worn, many Sachems were fresh.
