Sighting for July 17, 2022

Jeff Gesell

Jacobsburg State Park
Northampton County, PA

Mostly cloudy with occasional filtered sun, light breeze, mid-80s. Awesome day despite dry conditions…over 30 species in about a 2 hour loop! While nothing was a new species for me in the location, it seemed that almost everything possible this time of year was out. Likely more Horace’s Duskywing numbers than the single sighting, however the Wild Indigo numbers became almost overwhelming and it was hard to definitively ID all of them. FOY Sleepy Orange and Sachem, too!
