The temperature dropped from 90 to 65 F overnight in the wake of an evening thunderstorm. Today was sunny, breezy and much less humid. Skye and I took off for the beach around 10:30. Along the way, something brown flitted past us and ducked into the grass. It turned out to be this Eastern Comma
, flashing its small but distinctive namesake white mark on the underside of its wing.
It was a gorgeous day at the beach, and Skye was much happier at 65 than at 90.
A fossil scallop, Chesapecten
, lying on the beach partially filled with sand and shell hash. I don't see how that happened, but I don't think someone did it, either. Weird. Otherwise, a mediocre day for fossils.
Not a lot of traffic.
A Clouded Sulphur
in the dunes.
Back at home, a rare shot of the Spring(?) Azure
at rest displaying its wings on one of Georgia's Blueberry plants.
