Sighting for October 12, 2019

Beth Polvino

my yard NABA #1151 & Monarch Waystation #8318
Cape May County, NJ

Another good day in the yard with diversity and slightly increased numbers included fresh Red Admirals, American Ladies and Monarchs. Temps low 70’s, ~8 MPH wind, sunny. Clouded Skipper in good condition seen. I took images of it and many other butterflies today but when I went to d/l the memory card tonight I had never placed it back in the camera yesterday. Hopefully, it’ll be around again tomorrow. I have one image from another camera that shows Eastern Comma, Red Admiral and Question Mark on a combination of peaches and bananas. I was surprised to see the QM was so much larger the EC.
