Having spent the morning, Wednesday, participating in a survey of the birds
of Basin Harbor, our return home took us to the DCWMA, Brilyea, and the
north/south road on the east side. The wild indigo duskywing was first observed
nectaring on a honeysuckle blossom. The day being cool, there was time sufficient
to return to the car and retrieve 'Glassberg' while the butterfly remained.
Sue Elliott and I studied it long and hard (through binoculars) and with the
field guide in hand, it matched precisely the female illustrartion. Camera and
net were at home!!!
