Sighting for May 11, 2019

Brian Johnson

Shaws mill road off of Rt 555
Cumberland County, NJ

One last try for Cobwebs this year. That was at least twice as many Dusted Skippers as I have ever seen there before. I walked a lot further than I usually do though. It ended up being about 7 miles total. The cut looks so much better than when I first started walking it years ago. They are even putting flags where the Baptista is. I included a picture of a Cloudywing that I don't know what it is. It doesn't look right to me for a northern or southern and we don't get Confused Cloudywings in Jersey.

[Anyone want to try to ID the photo'd butterfly? jc]
