I visited the Sandhills Game Land inside the field trial area, along
Ellerbe Fire Tower Rd. There is still a lot of Ironweed in flower, but the
flowering is a bit past its peak. I was searching for more Dotted Skippers
and found two, one of which I was able to photograph. I walked a little
over 4 miles along the sunny roadsides and within the longleaf stands that
burned earlier this year. My list is below. Good butterflying.

Black Swallowtail 1
Spicebush Swallowtail 48
Palamedes Swallowtail 19
Eastern Tiger Swallowtail 6, incl. 1 black form female
Little Yellow 1
Sleepy Orange 15
Cloudless Sulphur 7
Red-banded Hairstreak 4
Gray Hairstreak 1
Eastern Tailed-Blue 6
Variegated Fritillary 10
Common Buckeye 13
Hoary Edge 1
Southern Cloudywing 2
Silver-spotted Skipper 5
duskywing sp. 1
Zarucco Duskywing 1
Fiery Skipper 2
Dotted Skipper 2
Clouded Skipper 1
