Life Species Of Moth

Not very often now can I find a life species but I did today while looking for elfins around Sparrow Lake. On the limestone pavement near Sparrow Lake were several Bluish Spring Moths, Lomographa semiclarata. I had observed several Northern Spring Azures but realized that some were different and once found in my binoculars realized it was a moth and not a butterfly. There were also Hoary Elfins, Eastern Pine Elfins, Olympia Marbles, Mourning Cloaks, and Eastern Commas. Also my first species of dragonfly for the year and not a Common Green Darner but a Beaverpond Baskettail. A common spring moth in our area but I don't know why I had not encountered it before when searching for butterflies. I will post the photo later when I download it.
