Sighting for May 3, 2022

I don’t think I have ever seen the Silver-spotted skipper this early before but I had found a few of the larvae on black locust saplings in the yard last fall so they probably are now starting to emerge.

[We have had only one other report of silver-spotted so far in 2022: April 15 by Kathy Horn in CMY. jc]
