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.

Pine Barrens Lepidoptera

On Sunday, April 24, we covered a lot of southern New Jersey, from Atlantic to Cape May Counties, with Rick Ceck (author of Butterflies of the East Coast) and some members of the Linnaean Society of NY. I tried my best to identify these. Any corrections are welcome.

Two more posts to follow about the Pine Barrens trip.

Ward Pound Ridge Insects

We went to Ward Pound Ridge in Westchester County, New York last weekend during a heatwave. Most critters were hiding away form the heat.

Butterflies and Skippers

We I stopped for a bite at the Hidden Oak Cafe in the Manor House at Bayard Cutting Arboretum. The surrounding gardens were full of butterflies and skippers (labeled to the best of my ability – corrections appreciated):

Insects and more at WPR

We drove two friends to Ward Pond Ridge, Westchester County, New York yesterday. It was too hot to walk much. We enjoyed a picnic by Cross River. There were butterflies, dragonflies, other insects, and one snake up a tree. It was resting after having just shed its skin.


Cape May Wetlands

By the Cape May Lighthouse is a huge wetland area with loads of butterflies.
