The beautiful sunshine and soaring temperatures of midsummer have arrived and the butterflies have followed. The garden is in full flower and an excellent diversity of species may be seen on sunny days.
A Tawny Emperor – a first for the garden – was photographed last week. Other spectacular species, including Milbert’s Tortoiseshell, are present for the patient visitor.
The photo contest continues through August. Unique photo experiences abound in the height of summer so be sure to seize the opportunity.
We have a free summer education series set to begin August 7 and run until September 11. Come visit each Saturday morning as local experts teach about wildlife in the garden. A schedule is posted below.
