Ward Pound Ridge Butterflies

On June 4, 2022 we went with members of Linnaean Society of NY and the NYC Butterfly club led by Rick Cech to observe butterflies at Ward Pound Ridge, Westchester, NY. I got some help identifying these by some of the experts in the group but it is more than likely that I misidentified a few. Skippers are such a challenge!

The rest will be in the post after next.

    You may not have known all the names, but you know how to photograph them

    Sometimes, while watching an ant, bee, or butterfly, they just seem so incredibly amazing.

    You’re right about skippers being difficult to identify. I recognized a couple from this group, but the last two ‘blues’ are especially pretty.
