Sighting for June 20, 2022

Greg Prelich and Jeanine Apgar

Collier's Mill WMA

It was a gorgeous comfortable day for butterflying. 75 degrees, mostly sunny, 10 mph winds. The most common nectar sources were Sandwort and Yarrow. Dogbane barely starting now. Striped Hairstreak was on blueberry.

[A nice mix of species and including our second 2022 report of dotted skipper. jc]
