Saturday Gossamers

I didn’t get out birding this morning as I was busy fighting Verizon’s overzealous filters blocking all Massbird, but I eventually got out for the Mass Butterfly Club’s trip to Horn Pond Mountain.

Horn Pond Mountain’s a great place to explore but with the recent two weeks of lousy weather it was on the quiet stuff. We did see most of the expected stuff but in low numbers. However, almost everything was spectacularly fresh, obviously having emerged in the last day or so at the earliest.

A couple highlights:

Basking Azure

Summer Azure basking with wings open (they almost never do so)


And no longer basking

Banded Hairstreak

This Banded Hairstreak was nearby

Edward's Hairstreak

And this Edward’s Hairstreak was stunning.
