Sighting for July 31, 2019

Jennifer Bulava

Historic Smithville Park, Eastampton
Burlington County, NJ

Smith's Woods butterfly garden; during children's butterfly program from 10-11:30am.
Fantastic experiences with monarch just emerging from chrysalis and then landing on the students! Also had 8 black swallowtail cats, 5 monarch cats, and 2 black swallowtail chrysalises. Funny to have a red admiral land on the butterfly interpretive sign (but not next to its picture).

[Wonderful to see the next generation's naturalists getting such close encounters with butterflies! jc]
