Subject: Yucca Giant-Skipper in Bladen County, 03/17

Hi all,

While wandering in Bladen County, I was fortunate to briefly glimpse a
Yucca Giant-Skipper flying around a patch of Yucca filamentosa around
11:10 on Sunday morning, as the sun poked out. A lifer for me no
doubt!

03/17/24
Bladen County, NC
Was not actively butterflying but noticed these species incidentally

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail 1
Palamedes Swallowtail 2
Sleepy Orange 5
Cloudless Sulphur 1
Summer Azure 2 (at dung, forgot to mention to Harry LeGrand)
Juvenal=E2=80=99s Duskywing 4 at dung
YUCCA GIANT-SKIPPER 1

Best,

Miles Buddy
