With a repeat visit to the Arlington area today it was another really good day with 2 more species added to my year list of butterflies with confirmed sightings of both Green-veined and Large Whites. Added to that with it being a cooler day I managed to obtain a few photos, as yesterday everything was very active in the heat. With both a Speckled Wood nectaring on Lesser Celandine and a newly emerged Large Red Damselfly posing nicely on Cleavers as well as a Kidney-spot Ladybird that Pete found and my first Early-purple Orchid of the year it was a great day.
