Sighting for November 1, 2018

Steven Glynn

Dix WMA Sleepy Orange Colony
Cumberland County, NJ

Such a nice day, sunny and 71 degrees, and a return check was compelling.

Interesting that I spent more time today (12:15 to 1:45pm) and found fewer butterflies, than yesterday's briefer visit.

Excellent count of Sleepy Orange's on this first November day. One was dancing around a flower/leaf that was the same color as the butterfly and I couldn't help but wonder if it was confused. It landed next to it (see photo) and made for a fun shot.
