The sightings were from 08:00 to 11:00 when it became hot at 87 degrees. The main nectar source was Joe-Pye weed holding almost all of the Swallowtails. Most Zebra Swallowtails were along roads and paths today. All sightings were within the island today.

Sea Way NE, Shellman Bluff, GA

97 degrees, sunny. Still seeing new species since we had over 12” of rain in 3.5 weeks but none in a week now. This is our second Queen in a few days, we’d not ever seen one here on the SE GA Coast previously and it looks so fresh I don’t think it could have migrated far! And just look at all that pollen on the Eastern Tiger!

The nectar sources I saw along the trail today were knapweed, bindweed, alfalfa, Rubber rabbitbrush, sweet yellow clover and various grasses.

I saw two blue butterfly species I could not photograph or ID. One was teeny tiny, flying close to the ground and the other was heavily patterned below. I also got a quick look at a possible Milbert’s Tortoiseshell, which I hope to see again.

Anchorage Municipality, AK

Sunny and 73° as I started at 6:08pm and 72° at 7:05pm when I finished. Only two worn Dorcas Coppers were found tonight as we get late in their flight season, and both were in the southeast part of the bog where activity has consistently been strongest. None were found at the north end of the bog despite a careful search of shrubby cinquefoil patches. I also checked the trail around the bog and a wooded area at the north end for any recently-eclosed Green Commas but didn’t find any.

I went for a quick walk along the Colorado River early this afternoon to see what nectar sources were blooming, discovering that I’d missed seeing the knapweed in bloom. I hope the rubber rabbitbrush and sage will attract some butterflies.

No Name Trailhead, Glenwood Springs

Today I walked further up into the canyon on this trail, finding large clumps of yellow coneflowers, goldenrod and a few clumps of pussytoes growing along the creek. This report is an undercount; there were butterflies flying above me, next to me and at me all along the trail - what an experience!

10:55-12:25, sunny, mid 80’s, elevation about 6000 ft.

This has been a very big year for Cabbage Whites. It has also been a big year for Checkered Whites, which I had not recorded here before. It seems that the Checkered Whites like to perch, mostly on black mustard, whereas the cabbages perch briefly, if at all. When I see a white perching, almost always it’s a Checkered White.

Spent a good portion of the morning poking around along the dirt road and riparian aspen habitat near a friend’s house. I was excited to get some photos of the female Great Spangled Fritillary (subspecies charlottii) in the area. I also saw two Hemileuca moths flying, but couldn’t identify the species as three species fly in the area.

Capital Springs Disc Golf Course, Madison
Dane County, WI

I was playing disc golf with our grandson and not expecting to see a Marine Blue, but on the 17th fairway I saw a blue and took my advice to always look at them and it was a Marine Blue! I had Frank watch it while I got my iPhone ready and I was able to get this documentation shot. This is the fourth location I have seen them this year after 35+ years of butterflying in Wisconsin without seeing one.

12:30 - 2:00, mostly cloudy and showers with brief sunny breaks.

We only knew about this place from Venice Kelly’s reports to the NABA Sightings site. So guess who we ran into - Venice Kelly! Venice, who was conducting a NABA survey, mentioned that she had seen a female Scudder’s Sulphur. She took us to the area where she had seen it but the rain started to come down hard, causing us to run back to our car. When the sun came out briefly a little later, we raced back to the spot and got it. The Scudder’s Sulphur has a very restricted range.

Common Sootywing NOT common at this site. I cannot recall ever seeing one here before over hundreds of trips. Dun Skipper is second brood which has occurred here only the past two or three years and is apparently only a partial second brood.

The spring migrants were very sparse this year. I expect these new ladies came out of the Central Valley. It was 101 in Fresno today at 3:30 P.M.
