By Staff | Dec 17, 2019


Brian Holden, of Holly Springs, North Carolina, found a junonia on the morning of Dec. 3 at the Lighthouse Beach on Sanibel. He reported that he was walking in knee-high water when he noticed it partially buried in the sand. He and his wife, Tara, were enjoying their annual anniversary trip to the islands, which they have been done for six years. Holden noted that his wife got him into shelling and that this was his first junonia find. “I was excited. I think I won shelling,” he said of this year’s trip.
