I spent the afternoon on the Cape Fear River Trail. I parked at the
botanical garden and walked north to the train trestle over the river. I
don't know how far that is as a direct route, but I walked 6.7 miles, but
did a lot of backtracking along the route and covered some sections
multiple times. I saw 28 species today, which is a good total for here and
now. The highlight was a Byssus Skipper and a Southern Skipperling. My list
is below. Good butterflying.
