Sighting for June 9, 2018

Edward Perry IV

Bull Creek WMA
Osceola County, FL

This area has become very wet in a short time and the entire loop could not be driven. A surprise find was blooming gopher apple which harbored two Meske Skippers early in the season. Survey by EPerry & RWarner from 10 am to 4 pm but also spent the day with butterfly enthusiasts MHeinemann, SKelly, and S&W Wallenstein.
