Figured I'd check on the Sleepy Orange colony area and was delighted to find an overwintering adult Sleepy Orange flying.

[Another find in SG's documentation of this resident CUM population of sleepy orange – a species that ten years ago (or even fewer) most of us considered only a vagrant to NJ. jc]
