Observation date: June 08, 2021
Submitted by: KVEdisonNaturePhotos
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I watched it fly across a parking lot where it landed on the ground next to a bush. I was able to come close to take photos before it flew up to a higher tree. I do not recall if there were Tulip Trees in the parking lot but the area was surrounded by woods. Warm evening, about 45 minutes before heavy rain.
