Sighting for May 12, 2018

Steven Glynn and John Christensen

Warren Grove and nearby areas
Ocean County, NJ

Started at 9am, but tough weather, with overcast until 12:30pm kept everything hidden. Once the sky cleared, the butterflies came out.

John stayed longer to continue his appreciation of lifer Hessel's and noted the full quantity given in our count.

[Good work, Steve and John – including our first Horace's of 2018. jc]
