Sighting for October 7, 2019

Claire Campbell

Duchess Avenue Backyard, Marlton
Burlington County, NJ

A not-so-good photo of a sleepy orange but the butterfly did not wait around for me to get a good focus.

[Nice find, CC! This is our first photograph and second report ever for sleepy orange in BUR – following Tom Bailey's find at Palmyra Cove on 9-28-19. We had no previous records of the species in BUR Co, nor did Jim Springer when he compiled his excellent state map for the species on the North Jersey Butterfly website. A significant record! jc]
