Getting ready to travel to Big Bend Wildlife Management Area and nearby St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge is a BIG challenge for me, as is the eventual Oops! when I come to realize that I forgot to bring . . .
All the above to cop new and more pleasing images of this Georgia Satyr butterfly. All that in the hope of seeing new ‘Lifer’ butterflies for me.
Big Bend and St. Marks can do that, they can bring new joy on a golden platter, rich as they are in butterflies and botany and wildlife.
April 2019 . . . Florida’s Panhandle . . . Yummy!
