Howdy folks,

Our yard has been quiet lately, just the occasional Monarch passing through=
, a GS Frit which overnighted by our porch light, and lots and lots of Cabb=
age Whites. But today my son wanted to try a new recipe for which we didn=
=E2=80=99t have enough eggs, so I ran over to Simple Gifts Farm Store (here=
in Amherst) for a couple of dozen. When I got out of the car, I had to do =
a double-take: a Giant Swallowtail was nectaring at the flower beds just ou=
tside the store!=20

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/93181799 <https://www.inaturalist.=
org/observations/93181799>

I seem to have a one-month window (plus a few days) for seeing the species =
in MA. The earliest I=E2=80=99ve seen one (so far) was August 5, 2018, in C=
hester, and the latest to date was September 8, 2014, in Hadley. I=E2=80=99=
ve seen, I think, 10 total in this state, all in the Valley, and all betwee=
n those two dates.=20

Most of my other fun lep sightings lately have been out-of-state, courtesy =
of brief family-motivated trips to South Carolina and Utah. Have to go back=
10 days to my last skipper, a Peck=E2=80=99s in our garden:=20

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/92243488 <https://www.inaturalist.=
org/observations/92243488>=20

And a couple of days beyond that to a Tiger Swallowtail caterpillar, I thin=
k Eastern, that I spotted near the end of our street on a roadside Wild Bla=
ck Cherry as I was walking our dog:=20

Cheers,

Josh
