Sighting for September 4, 2017

Barb Sendelbach

KVSP (Twin Lakes area and butterfly garden woods behind office.)
Sussex County, NJ

A late afternoon walk didn't turn up many butterflies. There were several male Zabulon chasing after a single female in the butterfly garden. All she wanted to do was feed.
We did find several moth caterpillars and sawflies in the garden and the wooded area behind it some of which I have yet to id. Several Milkweed Tussocks, a Walnut Caterpillar which was crawling in some moss. More than likely looking for a good place to pupate and an angry Angus' Datana flipping me off on the back of the Walnut leaf.

  • Cabbage White 2
