Sighting for May 17, 2019

Edward Perry IV

Tosohatchee WMA
Orange County, FL

The morning started off a little cool with lots of dew. Once the dew evaporated a few butterflies started to show. We consider ourselves lucky to see one or two Juniper Hairstreaks a year in this spot (southern border of their range), but today was like a dream when we counted 13 along Powerline Road, mostly utilizing Bidens alba along the ditch. RWarner & EPerry, survey from 8 am to 3:20 pm; a good time was had by all!
