Sighting for May 6, 2014

Nils Helstrom

private farm in Branchville
Sussex County, NJ

Also saw an unidentified anglewing. Meadow Fritillaries appear at family farm annually about this time, although this year’s number is very low (about 20 on May 5th last year). My point-and-shoot camera, unfortunately, is not up to the task of getting a picture. And if I may make a very unscientific comment: Meadow Fritillaries are crazy beautiful!
