Calhoun County, GA
61-67F, 4-6 MPH Northerly gusting to 9, Sunny, 12:04-16:23, Habitat: Swamps and roads VERY flooded right now, fields, upland pine woods. Covered a large area. Despite beautiful day, did not see many butterflies (and not for lack of effort). The butterflies were moving quite briskly and taking minerals (or on scat); none were taking nectar.
I have not recorded the 5 male Duskywings observed with Papilio II 6.5x21 bins. All had dark faces with fairly prominent FW hyaline spots (with cell-end dot). Had some light gray over-scaling. Could not see the pair of light dots on outer ventral HW.
The Zebra Swallowtail was flying in one shot and at a far distance in the other.
