Sighting for July 10, 2019

Teresa Knipper

Pickle Factory Pond, Papermill Road
Cape May County, NJ

This area was packed with butterflies today -the rare skippers were a real treat and the buttonbush is at its peak. Saw many butterflies while paddle boarding on the lake and then walked down the road to catch a glimpse of more. Since I forgot my camera, my binoculars, and was just wearing a bathing suit most of the time I felt it was a pretty good list!
