First visit this year to a magical area with a small lake, vegetated pond,
marsh, woodlands, swamp, streams, fields, and Pacolet river. A friend owned
property in NC on the SC border, and his fence line is on the NC/SC
border. The new owner has allowed me to continue my photography there.
Unfortunately, I know the exact border, so can not count many odonata for
NC on my 8000 step hike today because the pond, marsh, stream, and river
are just barely in SC. Two thirds of the lake is in NC, but there is not
much vegetation. The adjoining area in NC is mostly residential and
meadow. I plan to explore other nearby NC areas to see if I can find any
good habitat.

Leps in Spartanburg County-
5 Tiger Swallowtail
24 Falcate Orangetip including some females
1 Spring or Summer Azure
1 Clouded or Orange Sulphur in field
2 Sleepy Orange in woodland
1 Polygonia

Odonata in Spartanburg County
75+ Lancet or Ashy Clubtail or both- on trails in woodland, sometimes 3 or
4 seen at a time Need to examine photos to see if I can separate them.
Pond, small lake, streams, swamp, marsh, and river all nearby, but only
seen on woodland trails. Most of them had many orange mites. One 100' from
Polk County.
Fragile Forktail, female- only odonata seen on pond except for unid
dragonfly that flew overhead.
1 Blue Corporal, female
1 Fragile Forktail, female

Leps in Polk County-
1 Spring or Summer Azure
1 Eastern Comma

Odonata in Polk County
2 Fragile Forktail, one male and one female

Caroland farms is a expensive, upscale housing community, but also a
working farm and ranch. Best bird today was a snipe in NC. Also Caroland
Farms is the only area near me where Cattle Egret have spent the summer and
where Barn Owls have lived in an old barn for many years..
