The butterfly numbers in our yard and various locations where we walk have =
fluctuated significantly this season. There was the drought and extreme hea=
t, of course. Some days there were few to no butterflies noticed in our nat=
ive plant-filled yard. Other days there would be a sudden burst of activity=
, although only a few species would be represented. Our reports to MassLep =
have fluctuated as well.
On 9/15, for example, in the yard I only noted (without intensive searching=
