Sandra Keller

Cape May Point State Park
Cape May County, NJ

50 degrees or so. Light SW winds. I was birding, but hoping for a butterfly. Alas, I couldn't id it down to species. It was in flight. Partly sunny most of my time here. Overcast as I walked out.

[Congratulations to Sandra and the Dowdells for finding our first adult butterflies of the New Year! jc]
