Sighting for July 21, 2021

Jack Miller

my yard Petersburg
Cape May County, NJ

I was away most of the day, but a couple of walk-abouts produced the most species for the yard this year. The rare sk was a rag that spent the day on one coneflower plant. I am guessing it will be the last one in the poorest year for that species in my yard. The Appalachian Browns were just beyond my back fence.
