Mannington Area

Mostly Cloudy with thunder & winds picking up. 85-90 degrees. Was fortunate to have about 2 min. with 3 fresh 2nd brood Bronze Coppers. Too windy but managed a couple of images. Obs. from 1:40 to 2:45.

[These are our first bronze coppers reported since 5-25 and our FOY checkered skipper for 2019. Good finds, Dave! jc]
