Near Warren Grove
Ocean County, NJ

Overcast, drizzling, and 57—58 degrees at midday here. Still some butterflies here during the annual field trip of the Newark Entomological Society. However, poor weather conditions and/or the acclerated spring season may account for finding only one Hoary Elfin here in what is prime Hoary Elfin habitat.
