Sighting for May 3, 2019

Jack Miller

MacNamara WMA
Cape May County, NJ

1:15 - 3:15. Sunny and low 60's. As you can see in the photo, the Zab spent most of its perched time combing its front legs on the plant. Had one good look at the cloudywing before it tussled with some Juv's and flew into the woods. Nice to see one survived the annual burn they do here.

[Our first report of southern cloudywing in more than ten months (6/17/18). Two FOY reports of red-banded hairstreak today. Good to have! jc]
