Sighting for October 1, 2018

Dave & Pat Amadio

Backyard butterfly garden, West Deptford
Gloucester County, NJ

Season high monarch total here. Earlier in the day, Pat photographed with her phone a Hackberry Emperor on the fruit dish. According to the early/late records this is our second latest sighting for this sp.

[Congrats to Pat on find and also on the phone documentation. Yes, this is our second latest record, and it's been quite a while since the only later one – from the AWS field trip to Palmyra Cove in BUR on 10-9-2010. Pat's find gives us only our second October record for this species. jc]
