I can tell that it is less than 55 F and not sunny. No posts. So, now that cabin fever has set in, perhaps breaking tomorrow, some of you please answer this. With each species, the number of flights are mentioned. Steve saying to hurry see the Falcate Orangetip as it has only one flight and will be gone by June. Now that is a long time until June, four months, so how is it known that the species has only one flight? And how do you know that some species have 2-3 flights? Steve says that is one reason for the observations. So, what is the observation key? I can guess the numbers you see at one time, but how can you tell when a flight is on the high side, that another is not hatching? I realize that time is important, but if something gets 2-3 flights a season here, they are trucking. It could come down to knowing how long the egg and caterpillar stages are before the flight stage. I expect multiply factors and some guessing. Another point, there have been at least two previous question posts, ID on Appy and if Summer Azure flies in winter, that neither were answered on line, but I expect were answered privately. If answered, I consider both of these not personal, but something of interest to the group. How am I and other low ladders going to learn if questions are not answered to the group? I know a friend of mind asked my about the answer to the Appy question. He had the same question. So consider this where you answer. Thanks. Michael Lee Bierly, Nashville, Davidson County, TN
