October 20 - A couple of additions to my butterflies of Inwood Hill Park page.

On this somewhat dreary morning I thought I would add some recent photos to my Butterflies of Inwood Hill Park page. First is a Red-banded Hairstreak photographedby the fenced in area on the north side of the soccer field about two weeks ago.

Second is a caterpillar of a Spicebush Swallowtail found up on the ridge in September. I have seen this butterfly in the park but have not managed to get a good photograph of one yet.

While we are on caterpillars, here is a photo of a one of a distinctive one of a moth taken up on the ridge in August.
