Second location of the day after a lunch rain break. Hot, humid, light breeze, mid to upper 80s. First Sleepy Oranges of the season! Unfortunately they would not cooperate for photos, which historically seems typical for early season…they usually settle down later in summer and fall. Great variety today…
