Etowah River Park
Cherokee County, GA

It was 65 & sunny so we headed over to the river in the afternoon to see if any butterflies had survived our continued light frosts. I was surprised to find 9 species still flying. Tiny asters & goldenrod are the main nectar sources (we found the favorite nectar source, wild cosmos, dead from light frost on 11-15-16). It appears that some butterflies will fly there until we have a hard frost. Yet I haven’t had a butterfly in our yard in the same county since a Variegated fritillary visited on 11-11-16.

Note re the Sleepy Orange photo: this individual was the size & shape of a Little Yellow but marked like a winter Sleepy Orange.

Almost the only flowers were in the roadside gardens along Jarmans Gap Rd near Old Trail, so most of the butterflies were here. Was surprised that I did not see any Commas or Question Marks. All the Sachem were worn; others looked fresh or nearly so.
