Leps & Odes

Posted on Jul 20, 2015

This is a busy time of year for the dragonflies and butterflies of our lands! Here is a Halloween Pennant (Celithemis eponina) and Black Swallowtail (Papilio polyxenes), two gorgeous species you may be able to find in your own favorite patch right now. Go outside today and enjoy the summer activity! Photographed by RTPI Affiliate Sean Graesser for the Meet Your Neighbours global biodiversity project in Connecticut while on assignment for the Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History.
