Sage at Port Lambton
I suppose some of you blog addicts thought I meant Thrasher, but early yesterday I was lucky enough to see the private boat Sage heading north on the St. Clair River.
I saw it coming and knew it looked very familiar. This was the boat the George and Dave Lee owned for many years and provided local cruises. Their name for the boat was Hammond Bay.
The Sage spent the past winter in Florida and was heading home for the summer up in Michigan.
I had a bit of time this afternoon and went out to check on the mosquitoes....err...butterflies at Reid CA. I did not stay long as the mosquitoes had to be the worst I have experienced there. Even with repellent on it was very uncomfortable!
The same Edwards' Hairstreak was still in its usual area.
A few Banded were around, but that was it for hairstreaks.
Lots of Appalachian Browns are out now.
I saw the first Common Wood-Nymph today, right on schedule. I did not get a proper photo on this one while trying to swat mosquitoes at the same time!
A few Gray Commas were around. This is a good area for the species.
Weather looks like a complete joke for the weekend.
