Sighting for April 24, 2019

John and Nancy Crosby

Sea Way NE, Shellman Bluff, GA
McIntosh County, GA

Full sun, 90 degrees in my garden. Saw swirling hairstreaks over blooming shrubs but never saw one land, did walk up to flower beds only to have a couple more hairstreaks fly off before I even got a look! Larkspur & petunias was nectar of choice for the swallowtails, Buckeyes & skippers liked the gallarida & Sulphurs chose larkspur and petunias.
