I had a much more productive day in the Carolina Sandhills NWR although I
could not find a Spicebush Swallowtail. Where are they?



I was trying to get a better look at a King's Hairstreak in a Sourwood at
Pool K when a Great Purple Hairstreak landed directly in front of me. A
very pleasant surprise!



I staked out an especially showy cluster of 6 Sandhills Thistle blooms on
Route 2A and soon had a Meske's Skipper and a Whirlabout jousting for
position on the blossoms.



A bit of late-blooming Butterfly Weed at Mays Lake attracted 2 female Coral
Hairstreaks.
