Sighting for September 10, 2022

Tom Bailey

Greenwood Forest WMA
Ocean County, NJ

12:10 to 3:10 pm. Sunny, low 80s. Primary nectar source Late Thoroughwort which is in full bloom now. Some thistle still in bloom but nothing on it.

[Three long-tails today (!) and this one far north of the other two suggests all butterflyers in South Jersey can be on the lookout. Could we have a big invasion this year? jc]
