This fall has been busy on the home front, but I managed a couple of trips out to one of my favorite spots – Seabourne Creek Nature Park. The goldenrod was in full bloom and proved attractive to both Great Purple Hairstreaks and Dusky-Blue Groundstreaks. The Greg’s Bluemist drew a company of regulars including Common Buckeyes, Monarchs, Long-tailed Skippers and more.
Altogether I spotted: Blue-Dusky Groundstreak, Clouded Skipper, Common Buckeye, Fiery Skipper, Giant Swallow Tail, Great Purple Hairstreak, Gray Hairstreak, Gulf Fritillary, Little Yellow, Monarch, Least Skipper, Long-Tailed Skipper, Pearl Crescent, White Checkered Skipper, and a White-Striped Longtail.
“Amazing” is an overused word, but these photos are truly amazing!
