Sighting for June 2, 2021

My yard in CMCH
Cape May County, NJ

This fresh Delaware skipper joined the worn one from yesterday. As Sootywings are wont to do, today’s led me on a wild goose chase as I tried in vain for a photo.

[Keep chasing that elusive skipper, D.A. This is our first sootywing report in several weeks – since three in early May – and no one yet has managed a photo. jc]
