My Yard - North Cape May NABA #1151
Cape May County, NJ

Excited to have a new life Butterfly, new yard butterfly #44 and I believe a new record for the Southern New Jersey. I found a Great Purple Hairstreak nectaring on Coreopsis about 45 minutes ago. He stayed around for 1/2 hr before flying across the street so hopefully, he’ll be back.
