Warming up


Satyr Anglewing (Polygonia satyrus) 


The air temperature reached ~65°F (~16°C) in Bodega Bay today — pretty warm for February.  I took a quick walk in the Bodega Dunes to look for butterflies.  It was a little late in the day, but I still recorded four species:  Monarch (15+), Red Admiral (6), Satyr Anglewing (2), and Margined White (1). 

If it's warmer tomorrow, perhaps another species or two will be visible!
