Sighting for September 15, 2020

John and Nancy Crosby

Townsend WMA, South Tract via Plum Cemetery Road
McIntosh County, GA

There must be host plant here for Southern Dogface as we saw at least 14! We also found 3 Palmetto Skippers not on this list! Summer Farewell was the most abundant & favored nectar plant but there was some liatris blooming. We stayed longer than usual as the next few days are predicted to be a rain out with Tropical Storm.
