Observation date: July 19, 2021
Submitted by: topper72
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Sunny, warm- temp near 80 degrees F. Slight to very little breeze. Searched for one of these most of the day south of the lake checking the plentiful E. racemosom with no luck. Decided to check the north side of the lake where it has been observed in the past and finally saw one land on E. racemosum on the way back to the parking lot. Maybe too late for them in this area?
