Southern Dogface Butterflies

While in-between assignments I was able to get some nature photography in! First stop was a quick couple of hours at Citrus Tract in Withlacoochee State Forest. Loads of Southern Dogface butterflies and Pipevine Swallowtails.

The last time I visited Citrus WMA was June 17 and June 20, and there were so many Queens and Bella Moths… only saw a few on this day. As I gather more details I believe this is some good information to keep track of.
