Sighting for August 2, 2022

Dolores Amesbury

My yard in CMCH
Cape May County, NJ

10am - 5pm. Although it seems that butterflies have been hard to come by this year, with the addition of Delaware Skipper today, we are only one species behind last year’s cumulative total for this date in the yard.

[Excellent news. Dolores. Thank you! jc]
