about an hour, 75 degrees, sunny. The cloudless sulphur was around the whole time, and quite possibly is the same one seen earlier at Lido Preserve which is just to the west.

The south side of this area has been bulldozed down to bare dirt/sand since my last visit, which may explain why the buckeyes were where they were; 4 were on one scraggly weed at one time- a mated pair and two ‘onlookers’, the most I have seen in one spot at one time in the NE.
