Sighting for February 6, 2017

Cape May NWR - CMCH, NJ
Cape May County, NJ

It was near 50 degrees and I found 2 fresh Orange Sulphurs. Hopefully, an overwintering butterfly will reveal itself to me soon.

[This is our first record for February and probably ensures that we will have butterfly records for all 12 months of 2017. In five of our log's ten years – 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2015 – we had no records at all for January or February – or both. Nice find, Will! jc]
