Under nearly full cloud skies with periods of sun, and temps in the mid
50's we walked a bit at the Lyman Reserve in Wareham/Plymouth and then took
a trip down to Falmouth to check on the Checkspot caterpillars at Crane and
then to Mahoney's Garden Center.

The most interesting thing we saw was a Duskywing at Lyman that at first
appears to be a female Juvenal's, but combined with a photo of the
underside of the wings (no spost), and the fact that inaturalist
immediately called it Horace's, I am up in the air about the ID. What do
you think? Photos of both sides of the wings at the links below. Either
way, it was a stunning individual!

The most surprising was a fresh silver spotted skipper at Mahoney's Garden
Center in Falmouth. Yes, I carry my camera with me through garden centers,
because... you never know! As was the case today. Photos below.

2 Sleepy Duskywings
