Sighting for September 1, 2017

At 1:00 pm. I looked out a window and saw a large Blackish butterfly with prominent white bands on the fore and hind wings. Believing it to be a White Admiral, I asked my wife to take some photos with her IPad. These came out poorly, but Jim Springer was able to enlarge the image so that the white bands on the insect are visible.
I also found two Black Swallowtail caterpillars on our Fennel plants.

  • Cabbage White 8
