Submitted by: Lou Feltz
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I'm primarily a birder but also photograph butterflies and odonates. I'm submitting this sighting because I could not find and comfirmed sigtinng other than in the Keys. This was inland and I believe the sighting to be important! The validity of the photo data is somewhat substantiated by the file sequence of other photos taken at this site. (I have never been to the Keys.)
