Edward Perry IV

Bull Creek WMA
Osceola County, FL

10 am to 2:45 pm. Area very wet and road unpassable just to south of Yolk Branch Bridge. Good to still see some Dusted Skippers persisting, but they are disappearing fast. Gopher Apple still in bloom this week but unable to find any more Meske’s Skippers utilizing it for a nectar source. RWarner & EPerry
