Sighting for May 5, 2018

Edward Perry IV

Bull Creek WMA
Osceola County, FL

Surveyed entrance road to loop west to cross road and back around to entrance road, then Cemetery Road. Weather was warm and partly cloudy. Major nectar sources: purple and Nuttall’s thistle, daisy fleabane. This property is being managed well and recent prescribed fires hold promise of a great fall bloom. It was nice to run into other butterfly enthusiasts the Salvatos. EPerry & RWarner
