Prescribed burns in the area kept me on the northern-most stretch of FR-236/Ino Rd.

Compton Tortoiseshell was my lifer look at one, though it was a quick thrill, as it zipped right at my head, flashed gold/black and it's pattern, but kept on going straight away.

Very good numbers. Duskywing counts are conservative to the masses of them seen. Any scat or damp areas seemed to swirl with them.
