This Hayhurst's Scallopwing, very rare in the area, was seen yesterday and today by Adrienne Frank and Gary Driscole...photo by Gary...at their garden here in James City County. The faint concentric light rings and scalloped wing edges are perfectly shown. One was also found on the Observatory's annual July Butterfly Count at the tip of Virginia's Eastern Shore on July 28th.
