85 degrees, full sun & windy. The Boat Landing at Harris Neck NWR was the only location within 5 miles of our home where the gnats and deer flies weren’t swarming at our truck windows! Some of these photos were taken through the glass. I wish I knew the name of the plant the Giant Swallowtail was oviposting on!

Finally, after days and days of rain, we had a beautiful day with a high of 85! The Southern Dogface was a surprise, we usually don’t see them in the spring. As is typical for spring brood butterflies, not much was stopping long enough to get photos. As I was leaving to go to the park, I had a Sleepy Orange fly through the back yard.
