Sighting for May 3, 2020

John and Nancy Crosby

Harris Neck NWR
McIntosh County, GA

85 degrees, sunny. Disappointed to find that the fogfruit host plant for Phaon Crescent had been mowed again this year. It grows in the three ft strip along wildlife drive and is where we usually find Phaon Crescents and Little Metalmark. Mowers also got all the helitrope except that at Barbour Landing which is in another report. Sparkleberry was almost all spent so the few species we saw were on pinewoods milkweed. The Oak Hairstreak almost fooled me when I snapped the photo I thought it was a White M Hairstreak.
