Sighting for October 20, 2017

Steven Rosenthal

Pt Lookout, Fireman's Memorial Park - community garden
Nassau County, NY

Highlights from today among the Painted Ladies, buckeyes, Monarchs, Orange Sulphurs and cabbages: 71 degrees, sunny. The Cloudless Sulphur was nectaring, its hind wings were worn/ragged, and it had a weak low flight until chased by an Orange Sulphur, which afforded a nice visual contrast in size and color.

This is just a block or so from where I saw a fresh cloudless in early Sept, wondering if it could be the same individual.

  • Cloudless Sulphur 1
  • Red Admiral 1
  • Sachem 1
