3:00-5:00pm. Low 70s, sunny. My first giant swallowtail of the year. One of the common wood-nymphs spent some time on my pant leg. Many of the pearl crescents and American coppers were quite worn. There was also one extremely worn hairstreak that may have been a banded hairstreak but I couldn't be sure.
