Hot Summer Day at the Beach
Matoaka Cottages, or south, by the nuke plant. This morning it was out on the end of the jetty; looking hot... The light wasn't favorable; forgive the picture.
Snaggletooth that proved to be the best of the day.
Chance of Sea Nettles - 100%.
Great Blue Heron let us get pretty close...
Eastern Tiger Swallowtails, and since most butterflies that puddle are male, they're almost all yellow. So if you see a black one, there's a good chance it's something else, mostly likely a Spicebush Swallowtail like this one, or a Black Swallowtail, or even a Red Spotted Purple.
