On Saturday 6 participants braved the heat to count butterflies at Appleton
Farms in Ipswich - wearing masks and social distancing of course. The
uplands were parched. Even the milkweed was wilting. However, the wet
meadows of the Farm were productive. Within the first 2 minutes of the
walk participants were treated to 1 of 2 bronze coppers in beautiful
condition. Least skippers seemed to be everywhere and other skippers were
not cooperative and seemed to be very rambunctious with the heat. It was
near impossible to get a decent look. Silver-bordered fritillaries did not
disappoint.

17 Cabbage White

1 Monarch

3 Black swallowtail

2 Bronze copper

5 Clouded sulphur

10 Common ringlet

1 Red admiral

6 Pecks skipper

11 Unidentified skippers

22 Least skipper

2 Orange sulphur

1 Pearl crescent

6 Silver-bordered fritillary

1 Lady sp.


Thanks to all that participated even though it was very hot, we had little
shade and had to follow the Covid-19 guidelines!


Russ
