Sighting for October 7, 2018

David L. Amadio

Tall Pines State Preserve, Sewell
Gloucester County, NJ

Obs made between 3:15 & 4:45 p.m. Mostly cloudy and 78 degrees. Abundant Frost Asters, and Goldenrods here. Some white flowering eupatorium was still drawing some Monarchs. Needed much more time and maybe a little more sun. Surprised not to see Fiery here today as this is a good spot in October for them. Great potential.
