Sighting for July 5, 2019

Edward Perry IV

Bull Creek WMA
Osceola County, FL

Surveyed along entrance road past check-in station and loop east a short distance from 2pm to 6:45 with about 2 hours of rain in the middle. The butterflies came out when it cleared and dried up! Most everything was utilizing the blue mistflower in the roadside ditches, also winged loosestrife, prairie clover, rattlesnake master, shrubby false buttonweed, and Bidens alba. This was the most Berry’s Skippers we have seen in one short outing. EPerry & RWarner
