Sighting for July 26, 2022

Plainfield Township - GCEC
Northampton County, PA

Cloudy, light breeze, 80 degrees. Targeted location for Cloudless Sulphur and Sleepy Orange species without success. Senna and Partridge Pea plants were abundant…hopefully only a matter of time as good numbers have been present here in previous years. Nice variety of species out in a small amount of time and isolated location.
