Sighting for April 9, 2017

Allan R. Loudell

Lums Pond State Park
New Castle County, DE

One-and-a-half-hour walk, late afternoon.
Above 70 degrees, but a little breezy.
My first Falcate Orangetip of the year. Surprised not to see any Cabbage Whites, but did see one earlier in the day along Route 273 by the Route One overpass, Bear, Delaware.
The Eastern Comma was quite worn, presuming an individual which overwintered.

  • Falcate Orangetip 1
  • Eastern Comma 1
