Though it was windy, I enjoyed a fine early season outing, seeing 18 species, including personal FOS sightings of Spicebush Swallowtail, Clouded & Orange Sulphur, Question Mark, Variegated Fritillary, White-M Hairstreak, Spring Azure, Silvery Blue, and Silver-spotted Skipper. Juvenal’s Duskywings and Eastern Tiger Swallowtails were super-abundant.
