Jones Beach State Park field 4- central mall and "wild play" theme park area
Nassau County, NY

highlights of a 70 minute visit, 1130 to 1240….mixed sun and clouds, breezy mid 70s. Ocola Skipper was seen twice, as I headed in and as I was leaving, at the exact same spot as 9 days ago, on salvia and marigolds; presumed to be the same individual. Still some Cloudless Sulphurs around. Buckeyes remain the most abundant species by far around here.
