Sighting for May 1, 2020

Cynthia Allen

My yard in CMCH
Cape May County, NJ

I did not view the Summer Azure as well as I would have liked as it kept burying itself in the foliage of Silky Dogwood. I wanted to see if it was indeed ovipositing on this shrub which this species uses almost exclusively in my yard.
FOY Red-banded Hairstreak and a pretty ragged M. Cloak that has been alive since last fall.

[Good find! Our FOY summer azure. jc]

  • Eastern Tiger Swallowtail 1
  • Red-banded Hairstreak 1

  • 'Summer' Spring Azure 1
  • Mourning Cloak 1
