I spent about an 1.5 hours solo butterflying the Olympia Marble section of =
Madison County. (I don=E2=80=99t name the location due to the rarity of thi=
s butterfly.) The nectar plant is in bloom (a native mustard) and that was=
the big draw. (Though, fyi, Pete, Ben and I saw one nectaring on pussytoes=
on 3/14/24.) I stayed in that area the whole time and didn=E2=80=99t look =
closely at any skippers or azures.

Zebra Swallowtail - 1 (nectaring on redbud)
Eastern Tiger Swallowtail - 5 (one was a black female)
Sleepy Orange - 1 (flew by me, a very loud, striking orange-yellow =E2=80=
=94 it couldn=E2=80=99t be anything else, right?)
West Virginia White - 1 (fresh)

so had to make due with my macro.)
Azure sp. - 10
Silver-spotted Skipper - 1=20
Duskywings - 20+=20

Cheers,
