Butterfliers,

Today, Derb Carter and I spent several hours under ideal weather conditions=
searching the J. Robert Gordon Sandhills Field Trial Grounds in Richmond C=
o., NC, based in part on the recent successes of Will Stuart=E2=80=99s repo=
rts!

Some recent burns yielded beautiful habitat with nectar flowers like Vernon=
ia angustifolia (Narrowleaf Ironweed) but those areas were disappointing fo=
r butterflies. We did luck into an open patch of goldenrods and silkgrass =
and that=E2=80=99s where we found 3 Dotted Skippers before noon. Four more=
hours of exploring prime habitat yielded no more =E2=80=9Cgood=E2=80=9D bu=
tterflies, so we returned to that spot late in the afternoon and found a Wh=
ite M Hairstreak but no Dotted Skippers.

Overall, we found 26 species and it was a great day to be out exploring, an=
d we had a great time!!

Here=E2=80=99s the list:

Black Swallowtail 1
Palamedes Swallowtail 15
Spicebush Swallowtail 25
Sleepy Orange 70
Cloudless Sulphur 12
Little Yellow 5
Red-banded Hairstreak 15
Gray Hairstareak 10
White M Hairstreak 1
Eastern Tailed-Blue 40
Summer Azure 3
Variegated Fritillary 15
Pearl Crescent 18
American Lady 1
Common Buckeye 15
anglewing sp. 1
Southern Pearly-eye 10
Carolina Satyr 12
Silver-spotted Skipper 1
Hoary Edge 1
Zarucco Duskywing 1
unidentified duskywing 2
Swarthy Skipper 6
Clouded Skipper 4
Fiery Skipper 3
Dotted Skipper 3

Cheers,
Jeff
