A comfortable 80 degrees. After a week of no rain, the few puddles that remain were attracting clouds of Eastern Tailed-blues. Blooming thistle and Blazing Star were also popular. Stunningly red Cardinal Flowers are blooming. The black form Eastern Tiger female is only the second I've seen this year. Unusual air traffic continues.
