Guilford County - Jamestown 8-31-2021 White M Hairstreaks

Marie Poteat

Tuesday, under partly cloudy conditions which reduced the heat for a while,
I decided to use my time to do a thorough search of the mountain mint area,
primarily looking for the Great Purple Hairstreak. Over an hour later and
one bee sting, I found 5 White M Hairstreaks and 10-12 Red-banded
Hairstreaks - no Great Purple! Pictures of all the White M Hairstreaks are
included with distinctive wear and tear features on four of them. It is
hard to be exact on the Red-banded Hairstreaks since they are more prone to
reposition from one patch to another - not very cooperative. I also
included pictures of 2 different Black Swallowtail chrysalis that I found.

Pictures sent to CBS
