Fellow Butterfliers,
I've been delayed in posting our day-trip to the Doughton Park area from
earlier this week as I've been busy. Will's post motivated me to delay no
further.

Our goal was to finally see an Aphrodite Fritillary, which we seemed to have
completely missed during our visit last July, and to see a female Diana
Fritillary. We got the Aphrodite but not the Diana, so a good reason to keep
returning. Both John and I have unlocked the achievement of seeing all the
Fritillaries listed on the NC state checklist, with the exception of the Regal
Fritillary.

The weather was in the upper 70s to mid 80s during our stay from around 10:00
AM to 2:00 PM. The sky started off with a few clouds which continued to
increase. Little to no breeze. A near perfect day for our adventure. Link to

Let's Go Butterflying!
