Sighting for September 26, 2019

Edward Perry IV

Tosohatchee WMA
Orange County, FL

Surveyed 9a to 3:30p. Hot, sunny, dry. Main nectar was Pickerelweed. Some Liatris is starting up and will be stronger in another week or so, also lots of pine lily, swamp sunflower, Bidens alba, and Elephant foot (which opens its flowers later in the day), with lesser amounts of Frostweed, bull thistle, carpetweed, and mistflower. Road shoulder mowing was happening this day but there is still lots for the butterflies. EPerry & RWarner. A good time was had by all.
