Sighting for June 23, 2020

David L. Amadio

Lakehurst RR & Klot's Bog
Ocean County, NJ

Obs. made from 10:12 to 1:30, mostly sunny 84-87. The fewest butterflies that I have ever seen here. Also I have never come here this time of year and came away without a single Satyrium Hairstreak. Not sure what to make of it. Just one of those days. Mulberry Wings just tired me out. No photos of them today. Tried twice to chase them down and was flirting with heat exhaustion so gave up. Only one lone Bog Copper in this overgrown bog.

[Be careful out there, Dave! We need you! And congratulations on our log's first mulberry wings of 2020. jc]
