Moving Along in 2017

After a couple of days in the mid 60's, butterflies are becoming more prevalent.
On May 10, I went to Dansville SGA in Ingham County. A great place for all things outdoors.
Ran up a nice list of early May butterflies. Fourteen species were recorded.
Best sighting for the day was an Eastern Pine Elfin. This is only my second sighting for Ingham County. The elfin was in approximately the same location as the previous sighting. I had missed it
here the last couple of years.
Also in the days list were Eastern Tiger, Spicebush and Black Swallowtail. Also had FOY (first of year) American Copper and Silver-spotted Skipper.
