Butterfly Catch-up

Several butterfly photos have been been preempted by the Fall Hawk Watch on Putney Mountain. Other activities during the past week have prevented me from getting up to the ridge, so this seems a good time to catch up on some butterflies seen in the Philadelphia area and in southeastern Vermont mostly during September ...

Common Wood-Nymph - South Newfane, Vermont
Hackberry Emperor - Philadelphia, PA

Red-spotted Purple - Philadelphia, PA
Spicebush Swallowtail - Philadelphia, PA
Variegated Fritillary - Cape May, NJ
Eastern Comma - Philadelphia, PA
Question Mark - Putney, VT
Alas, most butterflies will be "disappearing" soon - one reason to look forward to Spring.
