Third Year for Harvesters at Roaches Pond... 

A freshly-emerged Harvester, Feniseca tarquinius, our only carnivorous species of butterfly (their caterpillars eat Wooly Alder Aphids rather than eating plants), perched on an Alder waiting for a prospective mate. Photo taken June 24 at Roaches Pond Park in Spryfield. This is the third year in a row that I've found Harvesters at Roaches Pond Park.
