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

No frost here yet but very cool today compared to past weather. Temp’s 44 & 50 during my rounds, sunny with winds 6 MPH. First round- good number of ladies, Fiery Skippers and Sachems. Next round-the same species plus a mint fresh red admiral and a Common Buckeye. At 3:15 PM, a lone Monarch flew into the front garden for a short visit. Several species of caterpillars and chrysalises continue. Images of all butterflies.
