Subject: A few upstate SC butterflies Spartanburg County

Holston Creek Park had lots of dragonflies (no damsels) at its several
ponds, and two juvenile Little Blue Herons, first I've seen in Spartanburg
County. Few flowers. Two mile hike.

1 Tiger Swallowtail
1 Cloudless Sulphur
1 Pearl Crescent
1 Common Buckeye
1 Red-spotted Purple
4 Carolina Satyr
7 Common/White Checkered-Skipper
1 Silver-spotted Skipper
1 Eufala Skipper
3 Fiery Skipper
3 Sachem

When I got home I found more butterflies on my lantana and butterfly bush
than during the 2 mile hile. These are typical numbers here this week-

1 Black Swallowtail
2 Spicebush Swallowtail
7 Tiger Swallowtail
2 Gulf Fritillary
1 Variegated Fritillary
1 Pearl Crescent
1 American Lady
! Red-spotted Purple figtree on over-ripe fig
2 Carolina Satyr by woods
8 Silver-spotted Skipper
5 Long-tailed Skipper
8 Fiery Skipper
7 Sachem

Last year we had almost no Cabbage Whites or Sachem. We continue to have
few Cabbage Whites, but Sachems have returned to normal numbers.
