Stopped here to see if there was any Harvester action. Obs. from 3:40 till 4:50, mostly sunny and low 80's. The garden here is not what it once was , but still drawing in some butterflies. Purple Loosestrife taking over, but still some nice mistflower & Joe-pye weed. One Tiger was a dark female. As for Harvesters: Only found aphids on one Smooth Alder tree. I found one worn individual partially obscured from my camera angle.
