Full sun and lots of butterflies. The most Ocola and Monarchs I’ve seen so far, observations around 10-11am. Did see a brief Clouded Skipper again, but wasn’t going to add it to my list without a photo. I suspect there’s still the same few wandering around. Stopped by the Triangle Garden after mid-morning and Jesse Amesbury soon found a C. Checkered Skipper. Believe he’s going to report a full list from there. Looking forward to seeing what the next new butterfly of the fall season will be.
