Location: Governor Nelson State Park
I parked my car near the fish cleaning station, then hiked the Woodland Trail loop. This was mainly a bird watching trip, but I did also find some interesting butterflies. The Common Checkered-Skipper was flitting about the lawn near the fish cleaning station. The Hackberry Emperor was flying up in the tree tops where it landed, then sat. This Hackberry Emperor was so tattered that it took a while before I recognized what species it was. I submit the poor quality, much enlarged photo of this Emperor because this is a near record late sighting date.
