Greetings Lepsters,

Yesterday, Fred Myers and I conducted the weekly Duke Forest butterfly surv=
eys in Durham and Orange Counties, NC. Sky conditions were excellent with =
sunshine and temps in the 80s, but we desperately need some rain. Eastern =
Tailed-Blues stole the show (as they often do this time of year), but brush=
foots still are seriously lacking. The highlight was finally a Little Yell=
ow, which was a white female, larger than average. We got mediocre photos =
only, as it didn=E2=80=99t stick around long, but we were still delighted t=
o see it!

Here are the results.
