Good naturalists keep notes, extensive notes, on everything they see. I must admit that with things happening at such a fast pace this spring I’ve been derelict in my duties. I’ve been neglecting my note keeping and am not up to date on the Lepidoptera (among other things) which have been fluttering through the Museum’s outdoor areas.
However, with camera always at the ready, I’m happy to announce that I’ve been able to get a few shots of some of early April’s highlights.
First, a few moths.
And now, several small handsome butterflies, all photographed on 10 April.

Great photos Greg! The Juniper Hairstreak is amazing as are all the others!
The little guys always amaze me. You have to get up close to see them (close focusing binoculars come in handy) but once you do the patterns and colors that are revealed are truly incredible!
Have a good one.
I visited today and had a very nice talk with you. Thank you for your time. I also go pictures of the Eastern Tent Caterpillars. There was a loner moving along the upper rail of the Wildlife Walk that I shot.
Pleasure’s all mine.
