Hello and Happy Easter everyone, Richard Stickney and I went to the
Sandhills Gameland and Baggetts Lake this afternoon hoping for some hessels
and Yucca Skippers. Here is what we found.

Tiger Swallowtail: 3
Spicebush Swallowtail: 12
Cloudless Sulphur: 2
Sleepy Orange: 3
Azure Sp(likely holly or summer): around 20
Eastern Tailed Blue: 23
Gray Hairstreak: 1
GREAT PURPLE HAIRSTREAK(Personal Favorite!): 7 - all nectaring on the same
Serviceberry bush
HESSELS HAIRSTREAK: 1 - worn male on the dirt road towards baggetts lake
Silver Spotted Skipper: 2- Mated pair
Juveneals Duskywing: Alot - Probably over 50
Sleepy Duskywing: 4 (likely more but only ID'd 4)

Even though we were unable to find any Yucca skippers, We still had some
great stuff today including a Harlequin darner for all you odonate folks
out there.

Happy Butterflying,
John
