Location: Spring Green Preserve SNA
I went out between 2:30 and 6 pm. It was sunny and in the upper 60s.
I was thrilled to find my first-ever Olympia Marbles! They were on the bluffs, near where their host plant can be found. They stayed extremely busy, rarely landing for more than a second. I saw them between 3 and 4 pm. When I checked back on them around 5 pm, I didn't see them.
The American Ladies were all in the lower prairie area, and I didn't see any when I walked back through that area around 6 pm.
Festive Tiger Beetles were abundant.
