The Same Old Baby Blue Eyes as Frank’s

I’ve been on the lookout for some 27 years or so for Wood Nymph Butterflies with bold, expansive yellow fields surrounding baby blue ‘eyes.’ Several times I’ve seen incredibly beautiful ones, only to have them flee, as the best of them all did at Raystown Lake in central Pennsylvania, w/o me coping a single image of it.

Frank Sinatra, the famous Frank Sinatra made famous the moniker “Ol’ Blue Eyes,” and well, my own blue eyes did on occasion work well for me, truth be told.

This Common Wood Nymph, met at Raccoon Creek State Park in southwestern Pennsylvania, about rates that venerable title, ‘Ol Blue Eyes, don’y you agree. An 8-hour drive from Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.

  1. At Fort Indiantown Gap, the biologists call them “Bob” for their flight pattern. I appreciate that as my departed husband was Bob, so I am reminded of him every time I see them.
