I spent the afternoon in the Sandhill Game Lands in Richmond County in
Block A. The highlight was running across WIll Stuart out there. We
explored an area burned in the spring, social distancing the whole time and
wearing a mask, checking patches of Liatris and Carphephorus in hopes of
seeing a Dotted or Meske's Skipper. No luck, but we saw some cool plants
and shared stories. I saw 24 species for the day, the highlight being a
Yehl Skipper. My list is below. Good butterflying.

Black Swallowtail 1
Spicebush Swallowtail 1
Palamedes Swallowtail 1
Cloudless Sulphur 13
Little Yellow 30
Sleepy Orange 10
Gray Hairstreak 1
Red-banded Hairstreak 1
E. Tailed-Blue 15
American Snout 4
Gulf Fritillary 1
Variegated Fritillary 25
Pearl Crescent 25
American Lady 7
Common Buckeye 20
S. Pearly-eye 4
Monarch 2
Long-tailed Skipper 2
Clouded Skipper 15
Fiery Skipper 5
Sachem 1
Yehl Skipper 1
Eufala Skipper 4
Ocola Skipper 15
