Sunday, May 1st 2022 I decided to drive along the blue ridge parkway on my way home from a camping trip. I stopped at a few over-looks just south of the Virginia state line in/around Alleghany County, North Carolina. I stopped at 3 different over-looks and scouted around for butterflies and saw the following:

Skipper sp: 1 (most likely a faded fiery skipper)
Silver-Spotted Skipper: 1
Eastern-Tailed Blue: 2
Pearl Crescent: 5 (One very fresh)
Meadows Fritillary: 2 (Lifer, FOY for me)

While camping, Danbury, NC stokes CO
(4/29 and 4/30)

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail: 6
Red-Spotted Purple: 4 (including one very fresh in the middle of the road)

Mostly just observations while driving around or hiking.

Pictures soon to come on Facebook page.
