Obs. made from 3-3:45 only covering the butterfly garden & adjacent fields. 93-94 degrees and mostly sunny. Very slow at first but picked up on my way out. Nice surprise in the garden! first a fresh Variegated Frit & then a Sleepy Orange nectaring on Purple Coneflower & daylillies. The Wild Senna planted in the garden may be paying off.
[Excellent find! The first sleepy orange reported in GLO this year and the second from Wheelabrator, after photo and report of one there by Chip Krilowicz and Jean Gutsmuth way back on 12-1-2016. jc]
