A birding and odonating outing this morning at W.B. Umstead State Park in
Wake Co., NC, yielded a handful of very common species. Here is what Lori
Arent and I saw in a couple of hours, mainly near Big Lake -- powerline
clearing, dirt roads, etc.

E. Tiger Swallowtail 3
Gray Hairstreak 1
E. Tailed-Blue 1
Summer Azure 1
Variegated Fritillary 1
Pearl Crescent 5
American Lady 5 one seen ovipositing on cudweed (Gamochaeta sp.)
Common Buckeye 2
Polygonia sp. 2 too fast for me!
Red-spotted Purple 1
Carolina Satyr 1
Silver-spotted Skipper 1
Least Skipper 1
Fiery Skipper 1
Zabulon Skipper 1 male

The most boring list of 15 species imaginable!
