I visited the arboretum in Raleigh from 200-315 this afternoon, under low
humidity, clear, and warm -- sunbaking -- conditions. We got only 0.16" of
rain from Ida, and things were already VERY dry before. So, the grounds
(and yards around here) are getting quite dry, and no more rain is on the
horizon. Butterflies were in short supply until I got to the flower beds
in back -- saved by them.

Here is the list:

Pipevine Swallowtail 10 most fresh males
Black Swallowtail 3 males
E. Tiger Swallowtail 2 low
Cabbage White 5
Cloudless Sulphur 1
Sleepy Orange 1
GULF FRITILLARY 2 male and female, doing some hanky-panky
Variegated Fritillary 1 low
Pearl Crescent 1
Common Buckeye 2
American Lady 2 one very fresh
Monarch 7
Silver-spotted Skipper 6
Horace's Duskywing 1
Common Checkered-Skipper 2 hope between broods, as seemingly low
Clouded Skipper 1
Fiery Skipper 80 more or less!
Sachem 6
Eufala Skipper 1
Ocola Skipper 4

Looked hard for Brazilian Skippers and Dion Skippers, which have been seen
twice here in the last 2 weeks.
