Nymphs and satyrs in Charles County, MD, 20 August 2013

Carolina Satyr, 20 August 2013

Not all nymphs and satyrs are mythological creatures. There were over a dozen Carolina Satyrs flying along a woodland path at Chicamuxen Wildlife Management Area in Charles County Maryland. Carolina Satyrs are common to the south of here but rare or absent in the rest of Maryland.

Also present were Common Wood Nymphs:

and Appalachian Browns:

And at nearby Purse State Park was this Northern pearly-eye butterfly:
