Lepsters,

Happy Father=E2=80=99s Day to all readers of this list who qualify!

While I=E2=80=99m was bummed I wasn=E2=80=99t able to participate on the Pe=
ttigrew Butterfly Count today, I did get a consolation prize/Father=E2=80=
=99s Day gift while surveying my butterfly transect in Duke Forest, NC. Th=
e last butterfly of the survey was a first Orange County record BYSSUS SKIP=
PER! This slight extents the range of this species in NC northwestward. N=
ote that the record is not surprising as this individual is undoubtedly par=
t of the same population recorded a few hundred meters to the east in Durha=
m County a couple of years ago. Still nice to see that this population is =
hanging on and perhaps expanding!

Photos of today=E2=80=99s Byssus are in the bottom row on this page:

ipper.htm__;!!OToaGQ!4oRvePLT5oQfilQEpJkicBXpKiYzHwRnvWJbDWxXPMWGPyJH8AefIN=
I5OQMvboqmX_0$=20

Overall, despite plenty of available nectar, the list is quite small. We a=
re still in between broods of many species in this area. Temps were in th=
e 80s and skies were partly sunny.
