Seven MA Butterfly Club members and two other butterfly enthusiasts braved =
weather reports of possible rain for the last scheduled field trip of the s=
eason at Appleton Farms in Ipswich. Rain never developed - instead we were =
treated to a perfect day. We had high thin clouds followed by sun, quiet ai=
r, and temperatures in the low to mid 70s!

Our list for the day (thanks to Marj Watson for keeping the count!) :

200+ Cabbage Whites (there were a lot!!!) =20
11 Clouded Sulphurs
4 Orange Sulphurs=20
1 White-Form Sulphur =20
2 Monarchs
8 Pearl Crescents
1 Bronze Copper
4 Eastern Tailed-Blues
4 Black Swallowtails
1 Gray Hairstreak

Notably absent were Silver-Bordered Fritillaries, which in past years have =
been found at Appleton at this time. And the numbers of individuals for mos=
t species were lower than we expected. But new friends were made and old fr=
iends caught up with each other.
