I visited the Pee Dee NWR yesterday afternoon and split my time between =
the roadside Pycnanthemum tenuifolium along Pinkston River Road and the =
mostly shaded Leaks Ferry Road.

The Pycnanthemum tenuifolium has been blooming for 10 days and is =
apparently just hitting peak bloom. A number of butterfly species not =
only visit but stay and systematically work the small blossoms. =
Yesterday I had 2 Palamedes Swallowtails and 2 lingering Black =
Swallowtail females in addition to the many usuals. It would be =
delightful if all North Carolina roadways had the wildflower (and =
butterfly) diversity of Pinkston River Road.

Leak Ferry Road was opened in 2018 and much of the gravel was washed =
from the road by last fall=E2=80=99s storms. They completed =
re-graveling the road in the last few days no doubt suppressing =
yesterday=E2=80=99s tally.
