Hi all,

I took a trip to Florida week before last and made a couple of stops in Jas=
per County on the way back, on the 12th. Most of the time was spent on Purr=
ysburg Road near the I-95 bridge, always a great hotspot with lots of Biden=
s alba, and a good indicator of how butterflies are doing overall. I also s=
topped at a site along US 17 close to the state line with lots of Marsh Fle=

Cloudless Sulphur - 1
Gray Hairstreak - 1
Gulf Fritillary - 3
Long-tailed Skipper - 3
Ocola Skipper - 2 surprised to see no Salt Marsh Skippers
