The Weather has brought out an abundance of butterflies in the Valley, I concentrated on the Hairstreaks today but couldn't help noting the amount of other species. I counted 25 White-Letter Hairstreaks this morning with some Females coming down to eyelevel where I could see them depositing eggs on stems. Purple hairstreaks were coming right down to almost ground level in places, I should imagine they will be showing well this evening. Skippers, Gatekeepers, Ringlets, and Commas seem to be everywhere accomanied by Dragonflies, Dameselleflies, Bees and other insects. a pleasant day.
