Salt Marsh Nature Center

Two posts on my field trip to the Salt Marsh Nature Center in Marine Park. All of these pics are larger and more detailed if you click on them.

These seem to be milkweed borers, Tetraopes femoratus:
Bayberry, a sentimental favorite:
Like shooting butterflies on a butterfly bush. I'm not positive on the ID for this one:
Well, it is a saltmarsh:
The cicada wasp:

They are all beautiful but the marsh landscape, the one you seem to apolgize for, is my favorite. Medicine for my eyes.

More please.

Thanks for the great photos. If you want butterflies, I found a good place today...the first plateau on Lookout Hill in Prospect Park has a wildflower meadow. I saw a ton of gorgeous butterflies there today, and many different kinds! I'm glad enjpyed the salt marsh.

The Audobon Center in the Boathouse used to have handouts to help i.d. butterflies on Lookout Hill. In wonder if they still do?
