Bear Creek 8/1

I joined an insect survey at Bear Creek Sanctuary in Saugus yesterday. It was a bit dry for dragonflies but the butterflies weren’t too bad. Some highlights:


Nicely posed Common Ringlet


Bug of the day: Common Buckeye

Wandering Glider

Wandering Glider, this may be the first one I’ve seen land. Didn’t get particularly close before it took off unfortunately.


Spot-winged Glider. Semi-posed shot, I had caught him to show the group the spots and he paused here after I let him go.
