Several of us (Lori Arent, Claire Sullivan, and I) scouted out Raleigh's
Raulston Arboretum this morning on a typical sunny and hot morning. This
was my first visit in 2022. Though butterfly numbers seem about normal in
comparison with previous years at this time, the diversity and numbers of
brushfoots and Lycaenids -- as with yesterday at the nearby Art Museum
ground -- remains disappointing -- i.e., decent amount of swallowtails and
skippers, but not too much else. Here are our totals:

Pipevine Swallowtail 12
Black Swallowtail 1 male
E. Tiger Swallowtail 12
Sleepy Orange 1
Cabbage White 6
Gulf Fritillary 3 fresh and frisky FOY
Variegated Fritillary 4
Common Buckeye 4

Silver-spotted Skipper 40
Common Checkered-Skipper 3
Horace's Duskywing 4
Dun Skipper 1 fresh male
Fiery Skipper 75
Sachem 6
Zabulon Skipper 1 male
Eufala Skipper 1
Clouded Skipper 5
