Cloudy very few breaks allowing sunshine. Very high humidity. 74 on entry @ 9am Rainshowers for first hour varied from misting to rain. 66 on exit after downpour @ 3:30 pm Estimate temps reached 82-84. Difficult to photograph as most butterflies seen are constantly moving. Increased butterfly numbers compared to last week but still below expectations.

Likely Checkered white below ridge but unable to photograph to confirm.
