AM lower 60s, fog burned off with the sun rise, but it left every thing dripping with a heavy dew. PM got into the upper 70s. I took about an hour to check on a couple of the colony sights for the White Peacock I found in Aug.; to see how the host plant were doing after the cold spell from mid Nov.; and found that the Frog Fruit flower heads had been killed back, and the Water Hyssop showed a little frost burn as well….As I was leaving the 1st sight I found a small patch of Spanish Needles and there was a badly worn White Peacock feeding and sunning.
