I spent the afternoon at Cape Fear Shiner Park in Lillington, NC. I parked
at a trailhead on US 401 and walked into the park by that route. I also
visited the large stand of *Zinnia *and *Cosmos* in front of the library.
There were a lot of nectar sources in flower today, but since it has been
so dry for so long I imagine nectar production is not great. I saw 19
species today, not bad, and that includes 6 species of grass skipper. My
list is below. Good butterflying.

Spicebush Swallowtail 6
Eastern Tiger Swallowtail 17 incl. 1 black form female
Sleepy Orange 5
Cloudless Sulphur 2
American Snout 1
Red-spotted Purple 3
Common Buckeye 1
Pearl Crescent 2
Southern Pearly-eye 1
Appalachian Brown 4
Carolina Satyr 1
Silver-spotted Skipper 13
Horace's Duskywing 1
Dun Skipper 3
Fiery Skipper 6
Zabulon Skipper 3
Eufala Skipper 2
Ocola Skipper 2
Least Skipper 1
