I was in the NC Sandhills Game Lands for several hours yesterday afternoon
under sunny skies with temps in the high 80's. I visited many of my
favorite puddling spots and, outside of Common Buckeyes, found very little
butterfly activity. I have not seen an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail in my last
few visits. Spicebush Swallowtails are very scarce. I did not see a
Palamedes. There is not much in the way of nectar sources currently. The
Sourwoods are mostly buds but will open soon. A beautiful Butterfly Weed
was only attracting bees and wasps.



I did find one early-blooming Sourwood in a streamhead that, with patience,
produced 2 King's Hairstreaks and 1 Gray Hairstreak as well as an Azure.



En route I checked the Butterfly Weed on Grassy Island and Pinkston River
Roads in the Anson County Pee Dee NWR. Many sections were recently
flooded.
