Stanford Wildlife Preserve in the Town of Stanford turned out to be a small butterfly haven! I could barely take a step without pearl crescents & common ringlets fluttering up from the grassy trails.
On my way back to the parking lot, I spotted what looked like a miniature fritillary… not much bigger than one of those pearl crescents. I snapped a shot and off he flew. After a little research at home, I am fairly confident that it is a meadow fritillary, a first for me! Not bad for my first time at this place! 🙂
