Pearl crescent on tiny fleabane

Fleabane and toadflax were just starting to bloom at the wetlands yesterday. Pearl crescents love fleabane so I staked this one out and waited ;-)

 

We also found a Common whitetail and Lancet clubtail - both new early records for the Piedmont. Our pollen count yesterday (8,164) was an all-time high and we're about to break the 1907 record for the most days in the 80's in March. So it's a hundred year thing ... enjoy it while it lasts!

 

Explore - seen @ 245 for March 20, 2012 - thanks for the heads up!
