Sighting for November 29, 2018

Beth Polvino

my yard NABA #1151 & Monarch Waystation #8318
Cape May County, NJ

Eclosed Brazilian Skipper on 11/123 and 11/26. Neither fully expanded their wings and lived less than 24 hrs. This AM another Brazilian Skipper eclosed and looks healthy and is flying in enclosure, leaving one chrysalis to go. Only nectar left in the yard are snapdragons as everything else died in the cold temps and brutal winds of the past several days. I do have a Mexican Sage plant I dug out earlier in Nov and BS is pictured on it. I see tomorrow's forecast is 50 with little winds so could let it go then.
