Butterflies & Dragonflies at Mount Auburn

December 7, 2011

The late summer is a wonderful time to visit the lakes and ponds of Mount Auburn in search of several resident species of dragonfly.  In the Dell you might come across, “…a Common Whitetail patrolling its territory, a 5-inch Green Darner hunting for prey or a delicate Eastern Forktail or Bluet skimming just above the floating duckweed.  Several summer butterflies – Tiger Swallowtail, Red-spotted Purple, Clouded Sulphur and Little Wood Satyr… may also be seen flitting across the water.” – A Guide to Consecration Dell at Mount Auburn Cemetery
