Cool this morning warming to the low 70’s. We hiked from 9:30 until 12 with Jim and Nancy Springer. Jim found an early date for King’s Hairstreak was May 6th. Our earliest was May 10th. We found precious few Sparkleberry blooms. I saw only 1 small tree of another species blooming. Hairstreaks were on Sweetleaf (symplocos tinctoria) the host plant for King’s Hairstreak, wax myrtle and oak. Most hairstreaks were quite worn. In the past we have always located them on Sparkleberry. The azure was a Holly Azure.
