Description

As the ocean has fluctuated over geologic time, the Florida peninsula has been covered with sea water at least seven times (Wikipedia, because I'm lazy). Though eastern Seminole County is 20 miles inland, the freshwater St Johns River used to be coastline, and it has salt pan habitats in its backwaters. I thought Eastern Pygmy-Blues may be taking advantage of the Salicornia growing at Mullet Lake, and they are! They are one of the smallest butterflies in the world. It feels good to find your target for the day.
