Last stop of a memorable 4 hr Bayshores drive. Light breeze, mostly sunny, mid 70's at 1:00pm. This pulloff was an astounding 20 ft of goldenrod that presented at least 14 species. Unfortunately, I accidentally erased many photos, including one of a probable Wild Indigo Duskywing. Some photos had 4 different species in the frame. The pictured Am Lady was so fresh it was still uncrinkling its wings. There were more hairstreaks of each species but I stopped counting. The Cloudless Sulfur was a flyby. For the day: 10 skipper species; 21 total species.
