Sighting for July 2, 2019

my yard NABA #1151 & Monarch Waystation #8318
Cape May County, NJ

Shocked to have a Fiery Skipper here while gardening.
Good looks but no photo's. Ran for the camera inside but didn't refind and went back to gardening. It's amazing how many Red Admirals are here. All look fresh and are all sizes. Variegated Fritillary laying eggs on pansies and 2 tiny cats found. Cloudless Sulphur laying eggs on Partridge Pea.

[Good find: our first fiery report of 2019. Also as Beth suggests, red admirals seem to be making another push north into southern NJ. jc]
