() or maybe a Canadian Tiger Swallowtail (P. canadensis). Very hard to distinguish between the two.

Dreamy Duskywing (Erynnis icellus). This skipper often basks with open wings.

Clouded Sulfur (Colias philodice).

Spring Azure (Celastrina ladon).

Eight-Spotted Forester (Alypia octomaculata). Small, but very beautiful, diurnal moth.

Lots to see in spring Downeast….life beginning again after a long and hard winter.
