The screwy weather we've had this spring has really hit the butterfly population. This far into the year, there ought to be plenty of butterflies, but there are only a few around. A few red admirals, but going through so much good habitat I should have seen dozens. I did have 3 or 4 giant fritillaries, and got fairly close to a couple -- so pretty. (No camera, due to threat of rain, so no pictures.) Even the sulfurs, usually too common to even really pay attention to, are almost non-existent.
The most interesting critter sighting was a good sized snake. My snake identification skills are weak, but I'm pretty sure he was a black ratsnake. Close to three feet long, plain dark gray (not really black), and seemed to be giving me a little of the fake rattle as he oozed into a hole. I was quite close enough that I could have grabbed him if I'd been inclined to do so -- but fortunately for the snake, I'm not a snake eating creature.
ETA: I forgot to mention that I saw a bright yellow warbler with dark wings briefly on the path. I just remember to look in the bird book and he's definitely a Prothonotary Warbler. I didn't realize they were with us in the summer, but the range map says they do breed here.
