There was a Strecker’s Giant-skipper in the same area of yucca plants where others have been seen in past years at this time of the year. It was a male perched on a dead stalk of little blue stem. It was perched in the typical jet fighter pose that grass skippers so often use, and the yellow spots on the dorsal upper wing were visible. Unfortunately, this one did not stick around for photos.

Plantation Rd., Gulf Shores
Baldwin County, AL

Waxleaf Privet bloom is about half way spent,but the bust out side my office window is still pulling in humming birds,and insects.The days notable sighting was a Monarch; because they over winter here, and are usually long gone by this time makes it a rare sighting. Our native milk weeds have almost two months of growth on them, so maybe the Monarch will be a more common sighting in the next few months, before the northern clan makes their return.

Jupiter Island
Martin County, FL

As I drove south on Jupiter Island toward Blowing Rocks Preserve, I encountered at least a dozen Great Southern Whites at every bend. I’d not ever seen so many during their migration. I think they must have had an irruption, as well. Friends in the Florida Keys reported incredible numbers, too.

This female laid five eggs in succession on this Virginia Peppergrass. There are four pictured here.

This WMA is 65 miles north of the coast,

Verbena has made a come back this year; it was sparse last year, but it is wide spread and abundant this year. It attracts and holds a wide range of butterfly speices which makes sighting identification much easier when they stay on the flower.

Butterflies a bit limited in number for the date, yet species diversity seemed reasonably good. Cobweb Skippers were recently-out, looking rather fresh, a bit less so of Dreamy Duskywings seen. Male Falcate Orangetip was seen on a blooming blueberry. Many butterflies were hilltopping, with mild weather & light winds. An Eight-spotted Forester moth was also at one high summit area.
Photos of half these species obtained.

p.m. visits. Juniper Hairstreaks appeared fresh; N. Cloudywing very fresh & feisty, some Cobweb Skippers not so fresh. Pearl Crescents more abundant than usual; no Boloria fritillaries noted despite past regular appearance of 2 of typical NE species in the areas visited, maybe too early - or too late for 1st brood?? Dun Skipper seems slightly early - seen well, but no photo. Overall number and diversity of b’flies not that high given the date.
