These creatures are great to watch.

Great color combination. Lacking a little camouflage. Wonder if it has trouble surviving.

Machi:

Sorry for the late comment.
It looks like it was one of those along the boardwalk as you enter from the parking lot. These were devastated several years ago in the Preserve by a beetle. The last couple of years they are returning in various locations, especially around the Ed Center.

I was adding some data and ran across this entry. If you go to Brooker Creek Preserve often, you might want to join the mission for BCP. These plants a showing in quite a few places in north Pinellas County this year.

This is FL native Lupine. We have it here in Pinellas County. I just spotted to large clumps of it near my residence just off the road and sidewalk. It generally does not bloom in the same place each year.

It appears to be a Skipper. If it was a little darker brown (not sure if photo is not correct exposure possibly due to sun) and w/ the green coloring on it head and starting down its back maybe a Long-tailed Skipper (Urbanus proteus). Various references under its common name to seek photos to compare.

Just looked at whatsthatbug.com. It had a couple of photos that seem to match your suggestion and my photos I took.

Thank you

I just looked the Plume Moth up. They seem to be much thinner/skinnier; and look like a "T". Not sure they fit my picture, Thanks.

Like the color, even if they are suppose to be common.
