Sighting for October 8, 2018

Edward Perry IV

Bull Creek WMA
Osceola County, FL

In spite of rain and very strong winds we were still able to count 33 species. We tried to find an Arogos Skipper but it looks as though their fall flight might be over in this area now. Seventy-percent sun up to 12:45 pm at which point it rained heavily and the sun became spotty the rest of the day; the outflow surrounding Hurricane Michael was influencing the day for sure. RWarner and EPerry from 9:20 a to 3:45 p.
