Monroe-Carbon Butterfly Count

This Saturday (June 19th) is the first Monroe-Carbon Butterfly Count. I am compiling this count as part of the North American Butterfly Association ( summer butterfly counts. On Saturday, several local butterfly-watchers will be scouring southern Monroe and Carbon counties looking for and counting butterflies.

Butterflies that will be counted range from the large, impressive Eastern Tiger Swallowtail:

to the tiny, nondescript Northern Cloudywing:

Good luck to those counting!
