Sighting for September 22, 2017

Edward Perry IV

Bull Creek WMA
Osceola County, FL

11:20 am to 3:30 pm, started out sunny but turned to rain in last half of survey time. No liatris but some areas with paintbrush, Bidens, Carolina redroot, Rayless Sunflower, and goldenrod. Signs of Hurricane Irma’s passing are evident in many broken pines, flooded roads (the bridge ares is washed out and closed), and bent vegetation. The first Arogos Skippers of the season are showing on Rayless Sunflower stalks/blooms that were not broken off by Hurricane Irma. This area was as wet as I’ve ever seen it. RWarner & EPerry
