Second location of the day…early afternoon…partly cloudy, light breeze, upper 70s. FINALLY had a Sleepy Orange sit for a split second to get a quick camera shot…unfortunately turned out a bit blurry but good enough for a positive ID. Numerous Cloudless Sulphur caterpillars on Senna…it’s been a very good year for this species. First Fiery Skipper of the year…
