Sighting for May 2, 2020

Brian Johnson

Estell Manor township
Atlantic County, NJ

This is a area of young Cedars in the middle of a mature grove. Most of the Butterflies were in the thick Cedars and almost impossible to get a picture of. I walked the grove for almost 2 hours before finding one on a flower. The count is conservative.

[Congrats to Brian for his finds. This is the most Hessel's the log has seen reported from one location in many years. -jm]
