Our long-awaited Fiery Skipper(s)—one male and one female—finally showed up, but we were gobsmacked to see a fresh Juniper Hairstreak, a North Jersey late date by more than a month. Also, one of the Giant Swallowtails we were overwintering eclosed this morning—so the others went into the fridge! Our late-flowering ‘Hella Lacey’ cultivar of NE Aster is a great attractant, and the remaining Brazilian Verbenas are also still producing nectar.
