Photo of the Week - Karner Blue Butterfly (NY)

Photo of the Week - 8/19/13


This is the tiny but elegant Karner blue butterfly, a species whose population has been declining over the years. In today's ‪#‎WordPress‬ feature, USFWS New York Field Office's Bethany Holbrook shows you how we are working to help these butterflies on their road to recovery in New York. As a bonus, there is also some great video of a butterfly release!
