Near AC airport
Atlantic County, NJ

11:30- 12:30 with heat at 90+. There were plenty of hairstreaks, but it was very difficult to put a number on the two species that were present. I am assuming most of Edwards I saw were females based on their build. Many times I watched them nectar and then zoom off into the scrub oaks. I was shocked by the lack of other species.
