Sighting for October 5, 2020

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

Just putting in a picture today as all of the same butterflies and caterpillars were here. This Long-tailed Skipper was one of 3 seen in the yard today. It came up onto the small deck by the back patio doors where I have Dallas Red lantana and was nectaring on it for about 15 minutes at lunchtime. I was about 3 ft away inside the house. It didn't even fly when I finally opened the door for better images. Also prior to that had a Ruby-throated hummingbird nectaring on the same plant.
