Sighting for April 1, 2016

David L. Amadio

Glassboro Wildlife Management Area
Gloucester County, NJ

Falcate Orangetip was a male. Blueberry Azures were marginata form except for one lucia form. Observed 11 Henry's Elfin swirling around a single American Holly. Henry's Elfins included two "viridissima" form individuals.

Moderator's Note: Among his many other good finds, Dave Amadio has kicked off our "Holly Azure Season" with his report of that species and his excellent shot showing that species' overall brightness (in comparison to blueberry azures.) Nice going, Dave! Watch out, everyone, ID'ing azures now gets even harder!
