Right away, I noticed lots of European Skippers puddling in the parking lot (getting minerals from the damp ground). I only managed shots of individuals.
Just past the new pollinator garden, I was pleasantly surprised to find an Eastern Pine Elfin in the grass along the path.

False Solomon's Seal
more puddling European Skippers (by the wetlands)
Baltimore Oriole pair (hiding in the leaves)
An evening walk was just as enjoyable. Highlights included:
a cooperative Silvery Blue
Milkweed blooms are just a few days away
Red-Winged Blackbird bringing supper to her young
Whorled Yellow Loosestrife
