Sighting for September 14, 2021

Edward Perry IV

Bull Creek WMA
Osceola County, FL

Surveyed from 7:30 to 11:45 when rain sent me home. Most butterfly activity didn’t start until about 9:30 am. Fall flowers are yet to come and are usually better at this spot from mid-Oct to mid-Nov. Some spots do look promising. West Loop is the spot now for Arogos Skipper, with the population climbing perhaps one or two more weeks. Look for areas on the west side of the drive that have patches of Rayless Sunflower. Get there early if you want dorsal shots, they rarely present. Hunting starts 9-18 with Archery kicking off the fall season. A good time was had by me! EP
