Sighting for September 18, 2019

John and Nancy Crosby

Intersection of Shellman Bluff Rd & Pine Harbor Rd, Shellman Bluff, GA near US Highway 17.
McIntosh County, GA

This is the location where in May 2019 we documented Rare, Byssus, Broadwing, Dion, Yehl, Two-spotted, Twin-spot and other skippers. Two days later the county cut the roadside destroying the pickerel lily. We checked all the roadside pickerel weed and had some of the same species only adding one Gray Hairstreak and several Cloudless Sulphurs and Little Yellows. We also checked the major powerline near Townsend WMA entrace where we saw 100+ GA Satyrs in May but saw only Little Yellows.
