Sighting for July 25, 2020

Edward Perry IV

Bull Creek WMA
Osceola County, FL

9 to 3:45; a slow morning started with clouds, but clearing to a sunny afternoon and more butterflies. We drove East Loop to Crossroad, and West Loop back to Cemetery and entrance, getting out and counting the good spots. Another surprise today when a Red-spotted Purple flew out of one of the hammocks at us, we jumped out of the car and it circled us for a while and went back into the hammock. EPerry & RWarner
