They should be flying right now, continuing at least up to July. Looking near the edges of forests is always a good bet (on warm, windless days after rain.)
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
