Annual Butterfly Count




Yesterday, on July 19th, the Observatory held its 11th consecutive summer butterfly count at the tip of Virginia's Eastern Shore (using the count circle for the Audubon Christmas Bird Count). The final results are not taillied yet, but here is a picture of a rarity we found...one of 7 Juniper Hairstreaks in just the Kiptopeke section....and a photo of count compiler Lyn Davidson addressing the great turnout.
