On May 6 I visited Sandy Lake Road, and I have never seen so many elfins. In one area, over a period of 3 hours, I counted more than 100 elfins. Probably half were hoary elfins, but numerous browns, eastern pines, and henry's. It seems this year is a big year for a number of species, not just red admirals.

Wow - that sounds amazing.  What area is Sandy Lake Road in?  I live north of Toronto.
