Sunny and 73° as I started at 6:08pm and 72° at 7:05pm when I finished. Only two worn Dorcas Coppers were found tonight as we get late in their flight season, and both were in the southeast part of the bog where activity has consistently been strongest. None were found at the north end of the bog despite a careful search of shrubby cinquefoil patches. I also checked the trail around the bog and a wooded area at the north end for any recently-eclosed Green Commas but didn’t find any.
