Sighting for July 25, 2020

Mike Russell & Chris Herz

Audubon garden
Camden County, NJ

Harvester a new bug for the yard! My husband Mike saw most of the butterflies today and discovered the Harvester resting on an oak leaf hydrangea leaf alongside our garage.

[Wow, what a find! This is the first report of harvester on our log this year – species number 86. But even more impressively: it might be the first time in our log's history that an observer found this species in their own backyard. Anyone remember a similar report? Chris, please tell Mike he can lead a tour of our yard anytime he would like to! jc]
