Wednesday 05/21/15 Beach Report

The temperature and humidity are slowly rising to summertime levels here in Slower Maryland, 80+ off the water, and partly cloudy, with the same 15-2- mph south wind we've have for 3 days now.
Can't you read the sign? To be fair, it's a little faded.
I would think the sand would be more comfortable for sun bathing, but the breeze was probably better out on the jetty.
 The dog wants in on the actions.
That's a lot of ink!
Tooth hunting was rather poor (11 total, with Georgia getting 6) due to crashing waves covering the best zone, but I did get this small, but perfect Mako tooth.
I also saw my first "for sure" Spicebush Swallowtail butterfly, who posed obligingly while "puddling." It is almost certainly a male, both from the puddling habit, and the greener back
You can also see the diagnostic "blue comet" amid the orange spots on the underside of the rear wing.

Dark clouds are rolling. . .  It rained just a bit as we arrived home.
