Visit to the New River in Ashe County

I participated in a Carolina Butterfly Society expedition to Ashe County, NC on July 13. Fortunately the rains held off long enough for folks to see some interesting stuff. Here's a sample from my photos:

The first is the Eyed Click Beetle,

Alaus oculatus.

The second set is an Azure species. I gave up trying to identify Azures in the field or photos years ago. It's a job for experts.

The final photo is a male Variable Dancer,

Argia fumipennis
