Travelers Rest - Hawk Valley field by Reedy River Tributary - grassland/wildflower field
Greenville County, SC

Seen mid afternoon - sunny, 80 F, breezy - in wildflowers
Saw a few others that I couldn’t id (learning here!) One was a petite pale lavender butterfly. The other was a dark colored skipper. Also bees!!! We usually have a number of swallowtails via my parsley in the butterfly garden but the wasps have been very actively harvesting eggs/caterpillars this year.

  • Black Swallowtail 1
  • Common Buckeye 4
