Sighting for April 27, 2013

Warren Grove, Chatsworth and Lakehurst
Ocean County, NJ

All Falcate O-ts were males. Azures were fresh making me think they may have been different form from worn ones seen two weeks ago. Year still seems late and generally poor for butterflies both from diversity and number of individuals perspective. After outbreak
of Red Admirals last spring, I have not seen one yet this year.
