2:30-3:05. 80 DEGREES. MOSTLY CLOUDY, HUMID.
For a quick stop, very good day in this garden for this time of year. Photos by Iphone.

This is at least the 5th Ocola Skipper this fall in Montclair. Common Checkered-Skipper is very rare around here (my 4th ever sighting in Montclair in about 20 years). One of the Buckeyes were super fresh.
