I'm still hoping for my first view of some efins this year, but so far I have had no luck. I did enjoy the walk, though, and saw Mourning Cloaks, Spring Azures, what I think was a Duskywing species and also a couple that looked like Common Sulphurs. I didn't get photo records on the last two, so I won't be counting those.
The Mourning Cloaks were in the woods that take you down to the power lines. I kept trying to creep closer to one that was basking in the sun on a log, but it was on to me and it flew around and around me. By watching its shadow on the ground, I could tell that it landed on the top of my baseball cap twice. I so wanted a photo -- at least of my shadow -- but it didn't stay long enough!
