Well, limited fun. Just the two. I am seeing a few more visit the yard but most are on their way to an important meeting so don’t stop for more than a second in any one place. I’ve seen a small fritillary of some kind but it never settles down long enough to even ID it much less get a shot.
I had seen this Summer Azure-Celastrina neglecta along the driveway but it didn’t stop for a shot. Fortunately it (assuming it’s the same individual) did stay put for a moment or two on the Boneset. If you look closely you should be able to see the proboscis. I had to dodge it a bit so it could be seen.
Just after that I saw this Peck’s Skipper-Polites peckius on some Miscanthus blades.
A sad story…the day before I had seen three of this skipper lined up on one of the Miscanthus blades but they all took off when I raised my camera. What a nice shot that would have been. But seeing them was enjoyable and the experience is every bit as important as a photograph. Of course a photograph proves I didn’t make the story up. 🙂
