Today is likely to be the last truly warm day in 2022 in the NC Piedmont --
maybe -- with highs here reaching into the low 80s. I wasn't planning on
visiting Raulston Arboretum, but on my usual birding route on the NC State
U. farm fields, I saw a lot of common butterflies on a small patch of white
clover. So, I was done by birding before 1000 (too "hot" for much action)
and visited Rauston from 1000-1045. Here are my totals, with Raulston
first:

Pipevine Swallowtail 2, -
Cloudless Sulphur 2, -
Sleepy Orange 1, - surprised not to a see a Cabbage White
Monarch 2, -
Gulf Fritillary 2, -
Variegated Fritillary -, 2
Common Buckeye -, 2
Silver-spotted Skipper 1, - quite late, and not really worn
Common Checkered-Skipper 8-10
Fiery Skipper 30, 12
Clouded Skipper -, 2
Eufala Skipper 1, -
Ocola Skipper 2, -
