Good numbers of Cobweb Skippers with the addition of Frosted Elfins, and Wild Indigo Duskywing. The habitat is being overgrown with some type of sticker bush which may over run the habit, making next year's search for Cobweb impossible.

[Excellent mix of spring species, including our second WIDW report of year and the highest count of cobweb skippers since at least 2015. jc]
