Butterflies of Fairview Farm and Willowwood Arboretum

I took a short trip to Fairview Farm and Willowwood Arboretum today to look for butterflies and other bugs. Here are some highlights:

Silver-spotted Skipper

Male Zabulon Skipper

The ubiquitous Cabbage White


A blurry picture of a Swarthy Skipper. These guys are TINY.


A cruddy pic of a Spicebush Swallowtail showing the missing orange spot on the underside that helps distinguish it from a Black Swallowtail.
