A few Tigers and some Black Swallowtails at the North Branch Nature Center
today as well. Both Silvery Blues and Spring Azures flying too. And finally
some ode action - a male beaverpond baskettail at the North Branch River
I also caught a beautiful black and white moth today. It looks most like the
Herpetogramma species in Peterson's Eastern Moths, but it's not an exact
match. Any ideas Scott? I'll try to get a digital photo of it.
