Sighting for August 12, 2019

Jesse & Jack Connor

Our yard in Port Republic
Atlantic County, NJ

Nice to return home from eight days away to find yard so active with butterflies. All three pipevines fresh and dog-fighting (one apparent female); monarchs our best count so far in 2019; and first little glassywing of year here. Mexican sunflower primary attraction for all species buckeye-size or larger.
