Warm day, ~60 degrees. First Common Checkered-Skipper I’ve seen this year! It was in good shape and very active. Sulphurs and Pearl Crescents were rather worn. It’s important to note that I saw 4-5 butterflies that I assume to be emperors, maybe Tawny Emperors, flying about the fields, but did not count them here as I never got a close look to verify I.D.
