Lori Arent and I did some butterflying at the NC State U farm fields --
mainly along Mid-Pines Road -- and adjacent Yates Mill County Park for
several hours around midday, under clear and mild conditions, 60-70
degrees. Sadly, Frost Aster is not quite in bloom, and there is very
little *Bidens aristosa* in this area, so it was mostly Tall Goldenrod and
odds and ends in bloom. Here is our list:

Cabbage White 2
CLOUDED SULPHUR 1 fresh female, my first anywhere in NC in 2020; Lori got
excellent photos Oddly, no Orange Sulphurs were seen
Cloudless Sulphur 8
Sleepy Orange 10
Gray Hairstreak 1 E. Tailed-Blue a horrible miss!
Variegated Fritillary 12
Pearl Crescent 10
Common Buckeye 18
American Lady 1
Red-spotted Purple 3
Hackberry Emperor 1 extremely worn
Gemmed Satyr 1 fresh; Yates Mill
Monarch 2
Common Checkered-Skipper 10
Fiery Skipper 15
Clouded Skipper 15
Eufala Skipper 1
Ocola Skipper 4
