Tosohatchee WMA, 4/12/2017 (Part 1)
On April 12th, Jeff Cagle and I visited the second-most recommended location for butterflies--Tosohatchee. Even though this place is relatively close (and almost right across the street from Orlando Wetlands Park), I've only been here about three times. But it was recommended that we try the Powerline Rd and Fish Hole Rd for butterflies. We were amazed with the number of species we had there. We counted over 30 species, and in fact we don't have an exact number yet, because we're still trying to ID the species in several photographs. But here are a few of my favorite photos of butterflies from our morning. In this post, I'll highlight the non-skippers and return the the skippers later.
