Sighting for May 6, 2019

Ben Barkley

Lizard Tail Swamp Preserve
Cape May County, NJ

Visited from 9:45-11:30 am in the 60s when I visited. Sunny with very little breeze. Bugs everywhere. Dragonflies and butterflies. Frosted Elfins photographed. Buckeyes and Ladies were the most common. Plenty of duskywings, which I thought were all Juvenal's.
