Ivy Creek is blessed to have many talented people willing to be generous with their time and knowledge on our behalf.  Mike Scott's Butterfly Walks have been a popular summer program over the years at Ivy Creek and I know it is sad for many of us to miss this year's June walk.   In honor of them, here is a lovely photograph from Diana Foster of two Silvery Checkerspots mating on a wingstem plant at ICNA.  Now is a good time to have your eye out for butterflies and, if you want some help with identifying them, please feel free to use this guide that Mike created for us to share.
