Kent Co DE Record Gulf Fritillary

Howard Eskin snapped this pic of a Gulf yesterday nectaring on thistle in the Bear Swamp area of Bombay Hook NWR in Delaware. While resident range guru Dick Smith says that Agraulis vanillae has been reported a number of times from Kent Co. DE, it’s never been confirmed with either a voucher or photo. So congrats on a new county record!
