Buckshutem & Cedarville Road area
Cumberland County, NJ

Wanted to check on the Coral Hairstreak colony here, but the weather was too spotty and the fields were heavy with moisture from last night's rain. Only walked the access road and the abundant milkweed along the edges, which was still quite productive. Most notable today was the Northern Cloudywing, which seems to have become a tough regional butterfly now.
