Sighting for September 2, 2021

My Del Haven Garden
Cape May County, NJ

2 probably 3 Clouded Skippers in the garden today. But between the hoard of Sachems and bees keeping track of them was difficult.

[A FOY for our log in 2021 and a superb find of a genuine rarity! We have logged this species in only eight of our fourteen years of logging and its numbers in our area are never high. Great work, HT! jc]
