Point Pelee N.P.

A few of us ventured out to a few spots around Essex county on Sunday, including the well-known Point Pelee National Park. It was pretty hot, so there wasn't too many birds around. Had some Bonaparte's Gulls hanging around the tip as well as a few Sanderling (4).

Insects seemed to be the order of the day, with some interesting butterflies hanging around the park. Most interesting I suppose included an American Snout, Juniper Hairstreak, about a dozen Giant Swallowtails and a nice Red-spotted Purple....

A spanking Red-spotted Purple

I think this is called a Cicada killer???
 This thing is crazy big, I wish I had something to give a size reference to it.

Walking around Pelee.....
All in all a pretty enjoyable day.
