Vassar Farm – Butterfly & Moth Spotting

Common Checkered Skipper

The Vassar Farm ecological fields have been a prime spot for looking for butterflies and moths in the summertime over the years.  Last weeks hike (7/6)  got me quite a few species, and this week got me a few different ones.

The highlight sighting was a common checkered skipper, a type of butterfly I haven’t seen since 2009!  It was hopping from clover to clover at the community gardens.  The other species that I spotted can be found in the photo gallery.
