Guilford County - Jamestown 4-7-2021 17 species 4 FOY

Marie Poteat

The weather was great today and butterfly activity was quite good. The
hairstreaks were all over the cherry trees - amazing! The weather has been
good for the blossoms to peak and stay on the trees for a long time. I
finally got some good pictures of the Juniper Hairstreaks. The first one I
saw this morning was one sunning on a Pine Tree before heading for the
cherry trees. I saw four at one time on the taller cherry tree so I think
there were up to 6 in the orchard at one time. The Great Purple Hairstreak
comes every day to the same tree but stays too high for a good picture, but
you can pick it out very quickly due to size. This is at least the second
White-M Hairstreak that I have photographed and this one looks more typical
than the first. I have been reporting one in the orchard so this is
probably the same one. The list is below.
