Very interesting observation Jeff!=20=20

I checked my photos - mostly from Mecklenburg County or surrounding countie=
s and from the NC Sandhills Game Land, but some from FL and VA. All my pho=
tos show the same as you observed - the white inside the eyespots are round=
spots for Northern and at least one has a bar on Southern. Creole seems t=
o be more variable based on my photos (all Mecklenburg for Creole).=20
