Without Trying for Butterflies

Thursday, July 28, got a Broad-winged Skipper while black lighting for moths at Brooklyn's Floyd Bennet Field. It seems to be my first Broad-wing in that manner. It's happened a few times over the years with Sachem.

Sunday, July 24, after finishing up checking for overnight moths at Westchester's Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, I got to photograph a Northern Pearly-eye that had landed on my car -- before 6:30 A.M. (The moth highlight, the night before, was a Tulip Tree Silkmoth -- I believe a first for the reservation.)  

Who needs to go out in the hot sun to find butterflies?
