Paterson private garden and Natural lands preserve next to it.
Salem County, NJ

Trail maintenance day. Most of the Butterflies were in the private garden. I didn't spend enough time in the garden to get a accurate numbers count. The Sleepy Orange came out of the garden and circled me on its way down the trail.

[This is only our 4th record of sleepy orange in SAL in our 11+ years of the log. Previously: one in 2009 and two in 2017. jc]
