Obs. made from 1:15 to 3 p.m. 74 & Sunny with S16-22 winds. A larger than normal number of butterflies got away from me today. As I kicked them up amidst the large stands of White Snakeroot the wind would quickly disperse them. Well at least that's my excuse today. All three Fiery Skippers were females this day. Found another butterfly, this time a Question Mark imbibing honeydew excreted by Spotted Lanternflies.
