A number of ants are in one of the Coral Hairstreak photos. Only 1 (if any) Coral Hairstreak found per milkweed patch-no big groups located.
One large field was loaded with Checkered and Cabbage Whites.
72-85F, NE 6-9MPH, Cloud Cover 28-46%.
0900-1500: Walked, drove, took over 300 photos of most of the species on the list. Took time to get good looks and observe behavior with the butterfly binoculars.
General habitat was the ancient sandhills of Burke County, just south of the Fall Line.

Extreme drought, and erratic cold with late frosts have left almost no nectar sources except in dense woods, blueberries and bearberries almost totally desiccated. Only major nectaring seemed to be on Common Lousewort. Out from 9:45 to 11:15 a.m. 68 to 74 F.

Phinizy Swamp Nature Park
Richmond County, GA

The large Broad-winged Skipper is common here. Its slow floppy flight is distinctive. Most individuals observed today were flying through the reeds beyond the reach of my camera.

3 of the 4 Broad-winged Skipper photos show a probable female cleaning her proboscis and face. The other BWS photo is of a male (I think).

74-80F, SE 3-5MPH, Cloud Cover 95%, 0930-11:45, Constructed Wetland Habitat.

The thick overcast probably kept the observations of other species low.

Chugach State Park, Flattop Mountain, Glen Alps trailhead
Anchorage Municipality, AK

Sunny but very breezy late afternoon. I selected “Western White” because an option for “Margined White” isn’t available. I’m referencing Butterflies of Alaska by Ken Philip and Cliff Ferris, which includes Pieris marginalis but not Pontia occidentalis. I’d welcome correction on the Polaris Fritillary. I was leaning toward Freija Fritillary based on reference to the Butterflies of Alaska guide but of the options provided here Boloria polaris seems closest in appearance. Unfortunately I didn’t get a view of the ventral side of the fritillary’s wings.

Warm sunny day in mid-sixties. The Mourning Cloak was very tattered looking and missing most of its outer margins, presumably an adult that emerged last year and hibernated through the long winter we had. In contrast the new tiger swallowtails looked splendid.

Warm sunny day with temperatures in the mid sixties and a light breeze. Sightings were from along a bike trail in the northwest corner of the park, with small numbers of butterflies found in some patches of wildflowers. An orange-brown butterfly fluttered past a few times while I was at one spot photographing the silvery blues but didn’t rest so I didn’t get close views - maybe a fritillary of some kind.

Variegated Fritillary uncommon here; seen on large open field with some parts unmoved recently. Silvery Checkerspots just out here, & as every year here, the localized population is of concern, as it seems to be in much of the region. Good to see Hackberry Emperor again at this park, fairly regular in recent years but not at all common. Another good year so far for Red-banded Hairstreaks. A bit too soon for the Satyrium hairstreaks.

After walking for over half an hour along promising weedy patches with flowers (mostly dandelions), I finally found a single butterfly - my first Western tailed blue of the season. While photographing it, I saw the blur of a white butterfly flit nearby but didn’t get a good look. Presumably a margined white but not listed because I didn’t get a good look.

Sunny breezy late afternoon with temperatures in the mid-sixties and a good mix of butterflies. I selected “Mustard White” because an option for “Margined White” isn’t available and Pieris oleracea seems closer to Pieris marginalis than Pontia occidentalis. The fritillary is also challenging as it appears more like Boloria freija than Boloria chariclea based on reference to Butterflies of Alaska (by Ken Philip and Cliff Ferris) but Arctic fritillary seems the closest available option. Unfortunately I didn’t get a useful photo of the underside. It was surprisingly battered for so early in the season. I welcome any corrections. A second fritillary was observed but no photos were obtained. Likewise for a light-colored swallowtail.

Anchorage Municipality, AK

A beautiful day with temperatures in the upper sixties and a mix of bright sun and clouds. Conservative counts given. The fritillaries were a challenge for me as always with a toss-up between Boloria freija and Boloria chariclea butleri (Arctic fritillary), and I ultimately decided on Arctic - although more than one species may have been present. All species were very active and skittish. Most observations were well above the treeline at about 3,000 feet and higher in alpine habitat, especially near the peak of Mt. Baldy, but the margined white (logged as mustard white) and the Arctic and Grizzled Skippers were found lower down during our descent.

Warm breezy day with a nice hike a couple of miles up the Crow Creek Trail. While there were lots of small moths, bees, wasps, and other pollinators, not many butterflies were observed. I was hoping for some activity up above the treeline but didn’t see any butterflies higher up - although with limited time couldn’t search at length.

Silvery Checkerspots flying for about ten days by this time… concern as has been for years, the population here seems very isolated, & this species may be gone from some adjacent states, by all accounts. Tailed-Blue on a 2nd ‘summer’ brood, just starting here. Satyrium hairstreaks just getting started here, with Red-banded Hairstreaks out for some time. Hackberry Emperor seems regular, if a bit scarce - ? - here in recent years. A look in a few areas here for grass-skippers was not fruitful, will try again at some point - much of former small habitat patches for those has succumbed to rank weeds such as mugwort, bittersweet, and other pushy plants; native bunch grasses have suffered greatly. The first of Little Wood-Satyr, which here seems to have only 1 brood, in the summer season. Nectar sources still a bit minimal, other than on open & not-all-mowed fields, but some patches of dogbanes have been in bloom, and some common milkweeds just about to bloom. Weather has lately been much more conducive to emergences.

Very dry here, so someone placed a small bowl to catch overflow from the drinking fountain for benefit of thirsty chickadees. One Echo Azure was taking full advantage.

It was finally a good day for hairstreaks, not in quantity but a nice variety. Three Whites seen in a wooded area may have been Mustard Whites, could not confirm.

Hike with my daughter, so sightings were more incidentals. Multiple Azures, however 3 individuals were really large in comparison and more blue…Appalachians perhaps? I wasn’t able to look for black cohosh in the area, so I didn’t count them in the tally. Surprised to see a very tattered Juvenal’s Duskywing…

Obs. made from 9:10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mostly sunny, breezy & 72-82. Covered most all of the areas of the refuge open to the public today. Primary nectar sources were Common milkweed & Button bush. The day started off with a surprisingly early male Fiery Skipper on a patch of dogbane. Noticed an increasing number of Coral Hairstreaks as the day progressed, so between 4:30 & 5 p.m. I conducted a careful count in the butterfly garden & surrounding fields. 9 individuals found on Asclepias tuberosa, 6 on Asclepias syriaca, & 4 resting. Enjoyed my first ever observation of a mated pair of Zebra Swallowtails. A truly beautiful sight.

Windy Point (about twenty miles south of Anchorage along the Seward Highway)
Anchorage Municipality, AK

Not great weather for butterflies in the Anchorage area this weekend, with high temperatures in the fifties, blustery wind, and frequent rain. Hikes in several locations produced no butterflies at all. At this favorite spot I searched small bushes and clumps of grasses for any inactive butterflies hunkered down at rest, and finally found these two. I assumed they were both the typical greenish blue that I usually find at this spot (Kodiak blue is the local subspecies). In looking at the photos at home, though, the single row of spots on the ventral side of both wings of the lower butterfly suggests a silvery blue, while the double row of spots on the upper butterfly is typical of greenish blue. The underwing spotting on both butterflies is quite light.

Partly to mostly sunny, cool, breezy of Lake Superior. Great variety seen again after a full day of cold rain. I believe two distinct colorations of Northern Crescent were seen - they still appeared too light for Tawny Crescents and I didn’t get a good underwing look for a better ID. Both Harris’ and Silvery Checkerspots present. Happy to see another Silvery Blue in the meadow…

The Red-banded Hairstreak in the photo had a torn hindwing. After several attempts, got a shot of the iridescent blue of the dorsal side.

Two images of the identical female Fiery Skipper shot 21 seconds apart. Both photos show a little white speck on her right eye.
