Sighting for April 18, 2019

John and Nancy Crosby

Sea Way NE, Shellman Bluff, GA
McIntosh County, GA

84 degrees mostly sunny, 10 mph winds. All the butterflies esp the Swallowtails are loving the Old Fashioned Petunias as they are so fragrant! Firecracker plant (Cloudless sulphur) survives the winter and nourishes the sulphurs. Foxglove (CL Sulphur) is blooming a short time but also provides nectar. The most popular is the Passion Vine, host plant for our Gulf Fritillary (no photo) but gallarida (whirlabout) is also popular.
