9:15-2. Cool and slow start–didn't think I would see 10 species at first and only a few sachems! One Monarch was high in the sky–migrating? Crossline skipper was very worn. A. Copper was fresh. Patch of blooming Chinese bush clover was profitable and the A. Copper was here. The helicopter fly over reminded me what day it is.
