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

Another cloudy, overcast day, mid 60’s, 10-12MPH winds. Most butterfly species still here though I wonder how many butterflies will be here after the next few days of bad weather and high winds. Images of the Long-tailed Skipper and mint fresh Cloudless Sulphur taken. All Monarchs seen over the past week have been in mint condition and looked ready for migration.
