Riverdale, my backyard both species on dark purple butterfly bush at same time.
Morris County, NJ

First time in 6 years living here I’ve ever seen a Red-spotted purple. I have seen Question marks in the past, but this years overall butterfly counts are practically nonexistent compared to last year. No Monarchs at all, very unusual, no Painted Ladies, nothing on my milkweed this year. :(

  • Question Mark 1
  • Red-spotted Purple 1
