Be Careful Where You Stick Your Face! 

On July 27, I took a trip to a couple of to-date-unsurveyed Atlas squares northeast of Truro. At one stop I photographed this Long Dash skipper (Polites mystic) visiting some Purple Vetch with a pair of orchid pollinia, presumably from the Large Purple Fringed Orchids (Platanthera grandiflora) that I found along the riverbank, stuck to its face. Let this be a lesson to you: be careful where you stick your face!
