Going to continue to post two messages here to keep things simple (for me)....
May 3, 2012 - Ken Burrell, my dad and myself
Highlight was 2 Dainty Sulphurs... One at Fish Point in the morning, one on the south shore around 3pm
Little Yellow - At least 20 individuals. The first around noon at Fish Point, and the trend continues where they were seen regularly in several places by the evening.
American Snout: somehow we hadn't seen any Snouts until today, when they suddenly became common (50-100 individuals seen)
Giant Swallowtail - 1
Dark Swallowtail sp - 1
The "trend" continues for other species, as Common Buckeye(40+) and Variegated Frit(20+) were much more in evidence than yesterday.
Swamp Darners continued to increase - migrants
"Red Saddlebags" - 6 individuals. Only one was ID'd - a true Red Saddlebags
Spot-winged Glider - 1
Variegated Meadowhawk - 2
Painted Skimmer - 3 individuals
Black Saddlebags - only 5
Twelve-spotted Skimmer - 25+ individuals today - many appear to be migrants
1 large female Spreadwing Species
Super super fresh
I was excited for the first one...... Little Yellow
