Laurel Rhodes

Myakka River State Park

Hiked the park’s interior with Dusty Rhodes. Breezy with temps. in high 60s. Full sun. Modest sightings but welcome nonetheless. Asters and Polygala being used for nectar. Wonderful being outside after the cold spell we have had here. Also saw 2 Red-banded Hairstreaks yesterday at Scherer-Thaxton Preserve.
