Karl Overman: Birds and More

 
 

Now as an incorrigible twitcher of long standing, I am used to long distance chases for a rare bird but a chase for a rare butterfly is a new twist for me.  This came about as Robert Epstein was staying overnight with us on Marco Island and wanted to try for several rare butterflies a friend of his had recently at John Pennekamp State Park on Key Largo so we were off early in the morning.  We manage to get this beauty for our efforts.
