Got a late start but spent the hot, sunny afternoon of 8/23/21 in Camden Co. (first list) and Pasquotank Co. (second list). Just the typical stuff, but maybe low expectations for butterflies made for an enjoyable trip for Elisa & I. Had never been to Charles Creek Park in Elizabeth City and was surprised to find a nice albeit short boardwalk loaded with Mikania scandens plus some other nectar sources.
