10-11:30am, cloudy and muggy, no sun until the last 10 minutes. Only 1 black swallowtail caterpillar on parsley.
The great spangled fritillary was last seen here on June 2014, so certainly a great treat after four years! There were two - one perfect and one ragged. We also had a new dragonfly species that was never recorded here - a dragonhunter.

[This is also only our second report of spangled frit of the year. Most of our reports of the species over the years have come from SAL. Gochfeld and Burger note that there seems to have been a change in this species' status in NJ (through the 20th century) – as it became much less common on the Coastal Plain than it once was. jc]

Things are picking up at my favorite patch. Good to see. However the European Skippers were apparently short-lived. Heavy rains last week must have done them in, as none were found at this colony site and none have been found at the nearby Lummis Pond Preserve site since the initial sighting about a week ago.

Also odd to think that two Buckeyes are notable, but that's how it's been this season. Common generalists like Buckeyes, Pearl Crescents, sulphurs and ladies have been tough to locate in any numbers.

Obs. made from 11:15 a.m to 1:45 p.m. Very productive today. Rainy spring has provided ample nectar. Coral Hairstreaks nectared on Com.Milkweed, Butterfly weed, & White Yarrow. Also observed three of the Coppers on Yarrow. Common Yarrow is like a convenience store: Food not so great, but close to home. Besides the adult Monarch there was also one cat on Com.Milkweed.

Cynthia Allen

Middle Township Bike Path at Shellbay Ave.
Cape May County, NJ

I was casually walking on the Middle Township Bike Path just above (north of) Shellbay Avenue around 10:30 AM on Friday, June 15. It was just a quick stop on the way home from the store. I saw very few butterflies on this sunny, warm day where there was lots of nectar, to the point where it was almost scary—but this season has been this way. Then I spotted the Zebra Swallowtail!

After scraping myself up off the ground, I leapt into the grasses along the side of the bike path (getting covered in ticks in the process). The Zebra was working its way along the forest edge, low to the ground, moving south.

The ID was immediately obvious as Zebra ST is unmistakable and I am familiar with it in Maryland. It was in good shape with the tails intact. I got within a foot of the butterfly. She seemed to be testing the tree leaves for her food plant, and lacking Pawpaw, she seemed interested in the Sassafras.

I observed her for about 10 minutes before she disappeared from my sight. I would guess she continued southward, crossing Shellbay Avenue.

I suppose she could have been a release, but Delaware is close and a W/NW wind is favorable for bringing butterflies across the Bay. What an exciting find in this otherwise disappointing butterfly season!

[Congratulations to Cynthia on the superb find – and thanks to her for the detailed and delightful report. I bet I am not alone in my envy! This is only our second find of this species since our log began 10+ years ago. Jim Dowdell also had a zebra swallowtail (missing one tail) in his garden in Villas CMY on July 28, 2014. jc]

Strong west winds always produce butterflies on the beach. Admiral total could've increased 10 fold, if I was actively watching for butterflies.

[Intriguing! Are we about to have a red admiral irruption? We have had at least two large early summer irruptions in the last 15 years or so that were especially evident along the South Jersey beaches and shoreline: one in early to mid-July in 2001 and another beginning in late June and continuing into early July in 2007. jc]

A Monarch has been hanging around for several days but couldn't ID male/female. Today got images of her and some of the eggs she placed on the purple milkweed in the yard. The yard has only had 10 species so far in 2018 compared to 16 species by this date last year along with just 1-2 of each species. Overwintered 80 black swallowtail chrysalis with 55 eclosing so far, one wasp and 24 remaining to eclose.

This is my favorite patch and has been a robust spot for the past several years. Last year, I had 17 species and 50 individuals on this same date. The year before, 14 species and 60 individuals near this same date.

This spot also is a secondary colony of European Skippers, a few miles from the larger colony at Lummis Pond Preserve. A large colony of Coral Hairstreaks is also married to this site.

Today's absolute lack of activity is a very big concern. It may still be early, but I'll check this spot often over the next couple of weeks.
