Elegant & Early

Photo by Harvey Tomlinson, Belleplain State Forest, 3-19-11

Goodness, what a pretty shot of a significant find! Harvey Tomlinson found this Henry’s elfin (Callophrys henrici) on a trail at Belleplain where the species is sometimes common in April, but not in mid-March.

This is a new early date for the species for our SJBF Log — even earlier than last year’s surprising first sighting on 3/25/10.
