I had hoped to comb through blossoming Clethra alnifolia in the Sandhills Game Lands but found that most of my favorite spots had been burned this year. I did find a patch of several hundred stems of Liatris spicata var resinosa on a seepage slope above Bones Fork that was attracting a mass of butterflies. I estimated at least 30+ Cloudywings and 30 Variegated Fritillaries visiting the stems. Plus a smaller number of Silver-spotted Skippers, Common Buckeyes, Sleepy Oranges and Pearl Crescents.

I photographed a worn Reversed Roadside Skipper plus 2 Swarthy Skippers on the Liatris.

I had not previously encountered such a large number of nectaring Cloudywings. Most appeared to be well-marked Southern Cloudywings.

In an hour or so I did not see a single Gulf Fritillary. I am still waiting for my FOY in the Game Lands.
