Meadville
Linn County, MO

Our family farm. The Painted Lady made 22 species seen on the property to date. Began tracking this season. Heavy rains (7 inches over 2 days) made lots of good puddling and we planted two new butterfly bushes which immediately began attracting butterflies. Purple coneflowers really coming on in the garden. Wild nectar sources included black-eyed susan, common milkweed, daisy fleabane and various other wild prairie sunflower/coreopsis varieties.

Eight Dollar Road and the high ridges above the Illinois River
Josephine County, OR

Cathy and I worked the high Ridges above the Illinois River for a second time to see how the fritillary numbers were changing. Zerene Fritillary numbers are clinbing and Coronis are decreasing. This is the most Zerene Fritillaries we’ve seen since moving to Southern Oregon. Seeing a Western Cloudywing was a treat. The usual spot is one ridge west of this locale, so seeing one here shows that there may be others in the vicinity.

Dozens of tiny skippers! I wanted to say Mulberry Wing, but not quite the airplane shape on the lower wings, & difficult to see the upper wings. Also, too far northeast from normal range. But, didn’t seem to fit Peck’s or Hobomok either. Also, Habrosyne gloriosa moth at visitors’ rest area. Mostly sunny, temperatures above 80.

Had two uncommon visitors today. A pair of Meadow Fritillaries spent some time on our oregano blooms. But my best sighting was a male Diana Fritillary - only the third time in nearly 40 years that I’ve seen a male Diana in our yard. I’ve only seen a female Diana once a few years ago.

My wife and I butterflied Mt. Ashland today. Wildflowers are at their peak and we saw lots of butterflies. There are still a few patches of snow in the shadows in the high peaks, which is probably going to make the wildflower show last a few more weeks. Seeing a Pine White this early is unusual, I think.

Walked from 9 - 11. Started out sunny and then it got cloudy. Temperature around 82 degrees, wind 9.2 mph. Was surprised at all of the red spotted purples and eastern comma that I saw. Driving to the parking lot I saw at least 5 Red-spotted Purples that flew up and I could identify for sure. I am sure there were more.

Red-banded Hairstreak found perched on wall - alongside many moths - at 7:30 a.m.
As I’ve noted before, Red-banded Hairstreaks seem more inclined to perch on a wall with lights overnight than most other butterflies!
Silver-spotted Skipper was at the base of one of the walls, dead.
Probably more giant Silkworm moths at one time than I’ve ever seen at one place: Many Imperials here - and at one other location near Northeast - over this, and the previous, weekend. Also, a dozen Lunas, and one Polyphemus. Plus, the smaller Rosy Maple Moths.

One huge Sphinx moth far above; I could not get it to come down to ID. Azalea Sphinx & Pandorus Sphinx.

Also, Banded (or Harnessed) Tiger Moths; Giant Leopard Moths; Heterocampa species; Emerald species; One-spotted Variants; Skiff moths; Ailanthus Webworm Moths; and various micros

CR 103- dirt road 4 miles north of nederland
Boulder County, CO

mostly we walked along the dirt road. there are little side meadows that we walked through as well. there were many painted ladies and small wood nymphs but only singles of most species. we had sun most of the time, and it was 68F. big thunder heads sent the butterflies down and us home.
last august i found a two tailed swallowtail caterpillar in a meadow on this road. i raised the butterfly, overwintering the chrysalis. i released him in that meadow a few weeks back. today we saw, in that exact meadow, a male two tailed swallowtail. i like to think that this was the one i released.

Along marsh along Dutch Neck Road - primarily just south of the "red barn" -- south of the C & D Canal, south of Delaware City
New Castle County, DE

Nearly 2-hour walk, midday. Beautiful day, mostly sunny.

Impressive numbers of Silver-spotted Skippers and Broad-winged Skippers, as far as one could see, over the marsh.

Love that part of the season when both Monarchs and Swallowtails are flying in good numbers.

Bronze Coppers which opened wings all appeared to be males.

Actually, my first Cloudless Sulphur of the year!

Surprising: Not seeing Red-spotted Purples or Viceroys this year. Normally see Viceroys in this habitat.
