Walked from 9 - 11. Started out sunny and then it got cloudy. Temperature around 82 degrees, wind 9.2 mph. Was surprised at all of the red spotted purples and eastern comma that I saw. Driving to the parking lot I saw at least 5 Red-spotted Purples that flew up and I could identify for sure. I am sure there were more.

I have frequent visits by Pipevine Swallowtails and have 5 little pipevine cats that I am rearing. Also, I had Spicebush cats last month but I think they are off in chrysalids somewhere. I have 1 female Monarch who has littered my yard with eggs and 1 tiger swallowtail but I’m not fast enough to get a pic of it yet. And of course a number of black swallowtail cats on my rue. Oh and plume moths

My wife and I butterflied Mt. Ashland today. Wildflowers are at their peak and we saw lots of butterflies. There are still a few patches of snow in the shadows in the high peaks, which is probably going to make the wildflower show last a few more weeks. Seeing a Pine White this early is unusual, I think.

Nice, fresh Red Admirals. A couple landed on me. It always occurs to me that we take Red Admirals for granted. Were these butterflies much rarer, we’d travel hundreds of miles to see them!
No Swallowtails nor Sulphurs; perhaps between broods.
