Striped Hairstreak

Friday 7/3: Went to the river walk for the first time in awhile for bluets and dancers. Got Blue-fronted, Stream, and Skimming but not much else.

Saturday 7/4: Out in Otis. Did a 5 mile loop of the state forest in the rain, lots of Blackburnians, BT Blues, etc but rather wet.

Sunday 7/5: Got home earlier enough to catch the end of the ode walk at the Cranberry Bog. Lots of sprites, first Elegant Spreadwings of the year, not a whole lot else at first. Did a loop by myself after to get the Sphagnum Sprites and found Eastern Red Damsels almost back at the car, unfortunately long after everyone else left.

Monday 7/6: Nothing exciting at Lone Tree Hill, only one hairstreak which appeared to be Banded. Warbling Vireo from the yard in the evening.

Tuesday 7/7: Fawn Darner and little else at the duck ponds.
