Yesterday after work I went for a walk at Reid CA. A variety of butterflies was around including several Dukes' Skippers.
I also found a couple of Broad-winged Skippers in another sedge area.
Hairstreaks included a couple of Banded and Edwards'. All these butterflies are getting worn as we approach the middle of summer.

A visit to McKeough today revealed very few things. I did see a Pronghorn Clubtail, but could not get on it with the camera. This Flag-tailed Spinyleg posed nicely.
There appeared to be a few fresh Common Painted-Lady butterflies out today. They blend in well on gravel roadways!
This Question Mark sat on the road for the longest time.
This morning, I headed down to Blenheim S.T.P. and found well over 100 shorebirds. However, nothing new! There was one Stilt Sandpiper, 3 Short-billed Dowitchers, Pectorals, Semisands and Leasts. The Semipalmated Sandpipers were by far the most numerous.
