In the spring/summer of 2012 I started to pay more attention to butterflies, thanks mostly to working on Louisiana Waterthrush stuff with Jody Allair who is a rather avid lepidopterist. Who knew there were so many species in Ontario? I think my butterfly list sits around 60ish now but that could be way off...haven't tallied it up and have some un-ID'd ones as well. Anyway, here are some pics from last year, with a bunch of ID requests! Help appreciated and feel free to correct me on anything!
****EDIT: some ID's have been resolved - thanks Kirk!
Northern Broken-Dash??? - near Long Point, July 7
Delaware Skipper - rare 2nd brood (October in Guelph)
Common Sootywing (only pic I got of this species!)
Eastern Tiger Swallowtail
Northern Crescent (?)
Summer Azure (?) - June 8, Long Point
Little Wood-Satyr (Viola's?) - July 7 near Long Point
Wild Indigo Duskywings (new for the LP butterfly count)
