Hayden Hege, 17, of Indianapolis, Indiana, found a junonia at around sunset on June 25 north of Blind Pass Beach on Captiva. Wendy Hege reported that her son was snorkeling for shells about 10 feet out in the water, thought it was a cone stuck in some seaweed and pulled out the junonia. “We have been vacationing in Captiva for about 12 years as a family,” she said. “We have yearly shell competitions with certain shells getting certain points, but of course the junonia is a game winner!” Hege added that this year was special as Hayden is leaving for college in the fall and they are hoping that he will still join the family on future trips.
