Reporting from Ohio. Meg and I did a little butterfly watching on the way to Cincinnati today. I found a Dainty Sulphur in Adams County Ohio and Meg found one in Clermont County Ohio. I read that up until 1999 Dainty Sulphurs had not been found in good numbers for 68 years. I read at Jim McCormac's blog Dainty Sulphurs have been seen a lot in Ohio during 2012. Jim's blog post from August and July tells of many of these rare butterflies have been showing up in Ohio, our sightings still could be county records.
It took a lot of chasing and waiting to get both of these photos, this last one I set the camera to focus at one inch and nailed it.
We also saw an Ocola Skipper in Clermont County Ohio, which could be an even better record than the Dainty Sulphurs. No way did it pose for my point and shoot camera. OK so I just found a recent county record for Clermont County, Ohio September 29, 2012.
