Sighting for July 4, 2018

David L. Amadio

Mannington Marsh areas
Salem County, NJ

Far from a thorough search this afternoon. Checked out various locations and roadsides in the general Mannington area. A brief sighting of a 2nd brood Bronze Copper on Button bush. Always a bit of a surprise when a Pipevine Swallowtail comes across your path. Overall very hot and dry here. No single location had butterflies in any real abundance. [Congrats Dave on reporting our FOY Pipevine Swallowtail. - jm]
