Patuxent National Wildlife Research Refuge South Tract
Prince George's County, MD

There’s a quarter-mile of powerline right-of-way at the east end of Cash Lake that has been managed to promote the growth of shadbush and highbush blueberry. This is always a good spot to find Eastern Pine Elfin and Henry’s Elfin; today was no exception. Warm (mid-60’s), partly sunny and breezy. In the field 12:30-3:00 pm.
