Sighting for August 3, 2019

Sandra Keller & Chris Herz

Eastern Neck NWR, Rock Hall
Kent County, MD

Sunny & humid, 85-87 degrees. Close mowing in 2 spots greatly reduced numbers of Pearl Crescents from just one week ago. Some newly blooming c. milkweeds mowed also was where the silvery checkerspots were just a week ago. Tried for another new species in the town of Rock Hall but only another Painted Lady at the vegetable market.
