A good morning at Bell Slough

I joined Tom Lewis and Karen Holliday for (primarily) butterflying this morning at a spot that Tom knew about beyond the main entrance to Bell Slough.  Our target was Dusted Skipper. Besides finding those in quantity, we also found the following: Little Wood-Satyr, Spicebush Swallowtail, Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, Goatweed Leafwing, Eastern Tailed-Blue, Red-banded Hairstreak, Pearl Crescent, Snowberry Clearwing Moth, and what I think was a Horace’s Duskywing.  Also seen was a Mink (by the quarry) and first of season Acadian Flycatcher and Red-eyed Vireo.

See the pictures from the day below and if you can identify some of those I couldn’t (or find I made a mistake) please let me know.  Click the pictures for a larger view and then the back button to return.
