my yard NABA #1151 & Monarch Waystation #8318
Cape May County, NJ

great numbers of Common Buckeyes -front yard counted by Jenny and backyard by me at the same time with 87 counted though more around. Sachems are everywhere -est 100. 6 Cloudless Sulphurs at the same time is a record, though haven't seen an Orange Sulphur in months. Male Cloudless Sulphurs interested in mating but the females not so much. I thought I saw a Long-tailed Skipper while busy watching the CS but it went through really fast so not counted.
