Cape May County, NJ

Sometime on the 24th of December an Orange Sulphur, previously reported, backed down a blade of grass and walked to a hidden spot within the small tuft of grass that it was on. This butterfly was there Christmas day and still there on December 26, 2017 awaiting warmer weather!

[A very cool find by Will K. – in both senses! jc]
