It was a slow day for leps at Mt. Philo, just the following:

Cabbage White
Eyed Brown -- wet meadow south side
Little Wood-Satyr
Crescent sp.
European Skipper

One that got away looked like a checkerspot, possibly a Harris', flew up
from asters-- nuts!

Also an interesting non-lep found on sumac:  bright reddish around head,
irridescent greenish-blue on back/thorax, chocolate wings tipped with
yellow.  Very elegant.  Approx. size of silver-spotted skipper.  Ideas?
