Mostly sunny, windy, hot and humid…mid-90s. Slow start with literally thousands of dragonflies zipping around, but improved in the low meadows out of the wind and away from the dragonflies. Lack of nectar sources due to the dry conditions. One of the Eastern Tiger Swallowtails was a dark form female.
