Hot & muggy but few bugs as summer rains haven’t really started. Hiked all morning but missed our target. Our plan was to walk 45 minutes on another trail to an area where we had seen croton previously. Just as we were turning around John spotted the Leafwing chase a Large Orange around a corner in a corrider created by small trees on the trail. We have walked many miles over the years to see this ‘lifer’! It was still in the area when we hiked out.
