Falcate Orangetip For Illinois In April - Anthocharis midea - male

Falcate Orangetip For Illinois In April - Anthocharis midea - Male
Norris City, White County, Illinois, USA
April 17, 2008
Data posting for this species in Illinois, for the month of April.

This is to upgrade a subpar image I had posted last year. Believe it or not, this is only the fifth Butterfly I've seen so far this year! (Every one a different species, however.)

Hey!
Howsa a comsa yousa gotsa flutterbysa and Isa notsa! I'm still sitting in flood waters. Notsa fairsa! :)

 
You Talkin' To Me!?
By this time last year, I had already seen 11 species and dozens and dozens of single Butterflies. This year, I've only seen 6 Butterflies total, so far. And I had to look hard to see them. Maybe they'll come out in Wayne County soon! Of course, the one's I did see were wearing waterwings. I would send some up your way, but I don't have many to spare. Sorry! I've seen two Sulphurs, an Orange and an albino one, a Cabbage White, two Red Admirals, and one Orangetip, this one. They're pretty scarce, here, too.

 
Same here.
One admiral and a cabbage. That's it. Even the moths at my lights are sparse. Unfortunately the black flies are not. :)
