All,
I took a much longer look along, E. Camino Cielo today. The biggest excitem=
ent was something that looked like a Southern Dogface flyby. I have some qu=
estions on a separate post on that.

From a POV of resident bugs, I had a decent variety. Sister, Leanira Checke=
rspot, Harford's Sulphur, Propertius Duskywing, and Mountain Mahogany Hairs=
treak were all missing from the list of species I would have expected a few=
years ago. California Hairstreaks (25) seem to be having a decent year up =
here. I suspect the hairstreaks are late this year as most were pretty fres=
h, Including all the Goldhunter's and Hedgerows. I had 3 Gorgon and 2 Taile=
d Coppers, giving me all 4 of the county's copper in a week. I took some ph=
otos of the Tailed Coppers to see if John Emmel can identify the subspecies=
..

Thanks to some help from John Pasko, I was a bit bolder in blue identificat=
ion. The first location (Knapp's Castle) had a number of what appeared to b=
e mostly worn female Lupine Blues. The blues here associated with Californi=
a Buckwheat and there were none around the Deerweed. I also had a Bernadino=
Blue as well. At my second site, there was no California Buckwheat and the=
blues were associating with Deerweed. The females were smaller and noticea=
bly browner. So I felt good these were Acmons. A Marine Blue (definitely ar=
riving earlier this year) and some Echo Azures rounded out the blues.

There were plenty of Chalcedon Checkerspots, but probably relatively on the=
low side compared to good years, and a few Gabb's still flying. Mournful D=
uskywing, California Ringlet, 8 Pale Swallowtails, and a single Anise Swall=
owtail and Callippe Fritillary. Of the 4 Painted Ladies, one was worn and t=
hree very fresh.
