Winged Wednesday VII

As the month of May closes, so does most of the major passage of migrating birds. The movement is not over; it just isn't so obvious.

Summer approaches and with it come myriad winged creatures without feathers, so in coming weekly reports some insects might find themselves the objects of attention.

Today's butterflies (to get things started entomologically) included sulfurs, ladies, and blues, just a few of the many species that can be found here between spring and fall. Exactly how many species might appear on site is unknown; the reserve has no comprehensive list of its butterflies. Surveying them would be fascinating and beneficial.
